Best paint to replicate "Argent" or bright silver grille trim?

SCFlareside
Hi all,

Looking for wisdom and experience from this board... our Silver Flareside had the argent / bright silver trim originally and I'd like to refresh it.

Before I go experimenting, I thought that I'd seen someone post a good paint that turned out well... and I can't seem to find it.  Any thoughts?

Thanks!
