I took my car to get a wax job and neglected to tell the dude not to wax the trim. All the gloss is totally gone and now the trim looks like flat gray. Be aware of this if you are waxing your car as the polishing will kill your gloss coating!!!
Now I'm thinking painting it with a spray match colour would be best... But how / where do I get this colour match?

^^^ I never used it but I know Bavauto.com has color match "touch-up" spray cans. They also have primer and clear coat as well.
