Default Underskirt Or Ground Effect Color?

Does anyone know what color code the underskirt or ground effect is on the '05 Supercharged Monte Carlo? I wanna paint my SLP grille to match that color. It looks silver and I guess it doesn't have to match exactly but if someone happens to know the color code OR where I can find it that would be cool.

Picture included but I think its the same color scheme on all the '05s.

It might be "dark tarnished silver" or "light tarnished silver"..

I went to hell and back trying to match up the 05 SS silver but mine is all silver, not just silver on the bottom..

One thing is FOR SURE.. my car is NOT galaxy silver...

It just makes me question what silver actually comes on these cars because the original paint on my car is said to be galaxy silver but it certainly is not.

LOL oh man so I'm in for some fun then it sounds like? I'll check out those two colors you mentioned like I said it doesn't have to be exact just close for me. Thanks for taking the time to answer I appreciate it.

I am not sure either, as my car lacks a paint code for my silver. But a large scale body shop around me was able to match it. I have used "galaxy silver" touch up paint and it matches.

Thank you sir. Can I buy that at any "big box" shop? Do I have to order it from somewhere special? We have a company near me "Painter Supply" who matches up the car paint perfectly with the code in the trunk and sells it by the spray can or larger volume.

I bought mine at AutoZone, but that was a while ago. You can check the local stores, if they don't have it, go to a local paint shop and see if they can custom mix it.
