    I have a buddy that will spray my fenders for free so I need to find a place to try and mix up some factory paint. I was wondering if you guys had a secret vendor that was cheap and had great paint...? I try to avoid macco type places when possible.

    And how many pints do you think it would take to paint two front fiberglass fenders (3" buldge)?

    2 fenders shouldn't take much more than a pint, but since the paints on this site are ready to spray, a quart would certainly do.

    I touched up my 1996 tacoma with their aerosol cans and it matched well. my brother touched up his 2006 4runner and it matched even better. probably some sun aging in my case.

    good luck!

    DuPont Chroma base about $55 a pint + activator $29 depending on color red is high price. Most auto body suppy vendors. Then there is clear coat $30 qt,+ activator its different from the base another $30 qt, plus urethane reducer.

    If you're just getting paint mixed, there's nothing wrong with places like Maaco. I'd find a place that can scan your paint and mix the paint to match, not just hand you a pint of your color code. Any body shop that does their own paint in house should be able to get you a pint to match your paint.
