    I know there are a million different threads on here about color match paint but i cant seem to find the site that sells it in a can. I did find one site but they wanted $25 for one 11oz can and i sware i seen it for like $15 on a another site along time ago. So if anyone knows the site can they let me know thanks.

    too much to list
    I purchased paint from http://www.automotivetouchup.com/ in both 12oz aerosol and also 1 pint in order to paint my trex eyelids and color match the grille on my off road.. the paint was actually a better match than from a local paint place...speedway blue (8p1) color code was spot on...the only thing I wished was faster was the shipping, took about 2 weeks to get the paint in.... Another good thing about their stuff is that it comes ready to spray.. usually when you get a base coat, the amount you purchase, doubles the yield after reducing etc...

    I used an adhesion promoter first (available at any car parts store), and then light primer.

    It took about 9 days for my paint to arrive but I was in no hurry. They probably are made to order so that may be part of the issue as far as time is concerned. Also, they are shipping paint which I think may be considered a hazardous material so this may play a role in the shipping timeframe. The color match is really close to spot on. I can't really tell a difference.
