    Does anybody know where I can get color match paint for a paint sprayer. I'm buying a camper shell this weekend and need to spray it to match my silver streak mica truck. I have an HVLP gun and experience painting. I've just never color matched before.

    If you have a local PPG, DuPont or other paint dealer nearby, they can take your color code & match your paint. Most also have a portable scanner to scan your truck to match the paint.

    Go to your local autobody supply shop. They will be able to help you out mixing the right kind of paint.

    Doesn't really matter. Just ask them what a decent clear coat is and spray it on. The clear coat I used for color matching my rear bumper, mirrors, and handles was just some clear I bought at O'reilly auto parts.

    Here's the clear coat I bought from O'Reillys. They don't carry it out front. Usually they carry it in the back.
