Lots of paint places can match paint to your paint code. There's a couple I've used that put it in spray cans as well. I would suggest that. But being that it's Polly it likely has a bit of an oily finish that will not hold paint. Most important thing is going to be prep work. Sand it down, primer then paint, clear. When I paint lips/rims I usually sand, primer, wet sand, thin primer then 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear. Don't spray heavy, you don't want runs.

Never used them before. I start lower with like a 600 to get it clean when I have to remove thigs like paint, defects or other surface contaminates then work up, 800 ,1000 and use 1500 for wet sanding. Also make sure you theroughly clean the surface after sanding and allow plenty of time between coats of paint.

Surface primer from Vallejo and an airbrush When you consider that the US$15 bottle contains only the paint, it's much cheaper if you already have an airbrush. It's easier to work with and doesn't have that revolting propellant odour. If you get too heavy on it, it will contract around all the detail rather than obscuring it.
