Dupli-Color is good. When I had the Bonne and was searching for my paint color, Dupli-Color was the only one I found that had it...which was a bit unfortunate because I prefer Plasti-Kote (not really sure why, I just do). But it was an exact match. I used it for the eyebrows I made. If used correctly and you paint with the proper procedure (BC/CC, proper drying time, sanding, polishing...) it looks just fine. If you plan on painting an entire bumper though, I wouldn't use a can of their paint...it would be very hard to get a factory finish with such a small spray width. For big jobs I would go to a body shop.

I recently got Dupli-Color'* Caliper Paint kit. As soon as I get different rims that show the calipers, I will be trying it out.

as soon as I see primer/metal, the car is gonna get a whole spray down with some duplicolour paint.. just because I know I won't be able to afford a real paint job for a while.. and it probably wouldn't be that bad, if I did the whole car, and did it all correctly and such.. but I KNOW its no replacement for a body shop.. just $$$ is always an issue for me.
