    So im doing my satoshi and the surround doesnt match my bsp truck. Anyone know where i can get like a half pint or so of bsp paint without paying an arm and a leg. Id prefer to buy the paint and spray(not rattle can) and paint myself because the auto body shops around want an arm and a leg to paint just my grille surround

    just find a local paint shop and have them mix it up for you, a pint will probably only be 20 bucks at most. Google PPG dealers in your area.

    PPG is a brand of paint, see if you have a finishmasters in your area...they are a franchise paint dealer and you can have them mix it. If you have some large bodyshops in your area they can mix it also from your paint code if they are willing to sell it to you. Smaller shops might not have a mixing station.

    Find a local Auto Paint Supplier. PPG I believe is a dealer/commercial only company so you will have difficulties with them. You local Sherwin Williams paint supplier can also point you in the right direction. You can also order it from Toyota. If you live in a fairly large town you shouldn't have to many problems. I went to my local Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint Dealer and got two quarts of BSP. I had one quart made into rattle cans. It didn't cost me to much.

    PPG is just a brand...finishmasters carries them, as well as local paint shops will...all the paintshops in my city will sell to the public however there is a little bit more markup on the paint/supplies. Reason i know...i used to work for one. :)
