    ok guys thanks for the replies.. to re-cap.. light argent for the grill and in 71 dark argent for the center caps... thats what i was thinking too, my confusion is that the 70-71 grills that ive seen,including the one i want to paint seem to be a combination of light and dark argent, what i mean by that is that light argent would be too light and dark will be too dark, it kinda looks like light argent with a hint of dark argent lightly misted over it, i hope im making sense, like i said ive seen this many times. i restored a 70 grill awhile ago and used light argent from totally auto and its beautiful but looks real light, maybe thats the way its supposed to look.
