Color CodeNotes
Argent Silver DX-8555Not widely available. Update December 2004: Keith M. writes that this is not a stone shield color. He passed along information from Year One that they sell part #QP323, which is Chrysler rally wheel paint, and part #QP8575, which is the textured light argent silver paint used on grilles and rally wheel center caps. Both are sold in quart cans.

Does anyone know the correct color code? If so, please let me know.
