    What do you guys do for small paint jobs, go to a body shop everytime?

    Is there a site you buy color matched paint from to match the stock paint?

    thanks for the help!

    You can buy rattlecans of the factory paint colors from ebay seller spraycansunlimited as well. I got some and it was a perfect match.

    I have used the rattle cans from automotivetouchup.com before. The match is not perfect but pretty close. Today I was in my local Pepboys. And noticed duplicolor has a "perfect match" rattle can collection. They had every tacoma color so I picked up 2 cans of silver streak mica 1E7. I painted my trex eyelids and the match is alot better than the internet suppliers and cheaper. Not sure if this duplicolor line is new. But I always had a hard time trying to find 1E7 at a parts store in rattle cans. Check them out. I have only seen them at Pepboys.
