Where to get touch up spray cans?

Whatís a good source in the US for touch up spray cans? I need them in factory colors for Ď98 and Ď04 cars. I donít need blending. Close works.

Case 1 - clear coat has peeled off the roof. Thereís a scratch thatís starting to rust. Iíll clean it to bare metal before priming and painting. I might be able to do this with brush touch up but I have 2 cars the same color and kids learning to drive.

Case 2 - replacement plastic bumper filler panel comes only in black

oreillys that carry dupont/axalta paint can mix the color you need and put it in an aerosol can for ya.

If you have a local store that specializes in auto body supplies, you may have luck asking there. Otherwise, Tower paint:

I get high quality paint mixed to match at the local auto paint supply store. I typically get a half pint mixed. Depending on usage you can probably get 3 are-sol cans made up and still have a decent amount left for brush touch up of nicks and such.

The spray quality is five times better than a already made up can from the shelf. I have painted a few cars myself in my garage from the trim line down on a 123 car. I like the non metallic paint if possible.

Ages ago. I thought many here recommended paintscratch.com. I have only bought from them once and had mixed results. They matched my 87 well, but made a poor match for my 68. I would say they are an acceptable option. Not amazing, not terrible.

I will have to touch up the Metallic Moss Green on my coupe eventually. I think a lot of it is original but it is all single stage(no clear coat). I know it is difficult to match SS metallic with no clear coat.

I got some BMW silver, the bluish type, put in spray cans at a place in San Leandro. The stock paint had faded a good bit and it didn't match perdectly. But it was close enough.

San Leandro Color: 510 - 569 - 8236
