Anyone know where to get cans of factory-matched paint? I am looking for the spray gun cans of some Sublime Metallic paint. I searched on google and found one company that could get it.... but it aint cheap! :confused: There were a couple sellers on ebay, but all they have is flat sublime (no metallic). Any help would be appreciated!

I'd be shocked if these guys didn't have it. They'll even mix it up for you and put it in an aerosol sprayer if you want....

Edit: Yup, they have it: http://www.expresspaint.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=0&idproduct=7592

I know they are the first results that popped up on google.... but Im know professional; with paint, but it seems like alot of moolah for just a can! How long can 1 qt. of paint last you? Or, if you had to guess, how much of a car do you think you could paint qith a quart? That sounds goofy to say, but thats the best way I can ask the question just to know how much Im getting.

Are you kidding? That's pretty reasonable. Auto paint is a bit more expensive than Glidden. :) One small bottle/can is enough for a LOT of touch up. If you're going to shoot a whole panel, you don't want to do that with an aerosol can. You'd want a real air brush/sprayer with a regulator and properly mixed for the current temp/humidity. This stuff is purely for touch up or out of the way places.

Yeah thats what Im saying, I have purchased the small aerosol cans beforer to do small areas and touch up work, but I have a spray gun with the proper regulator and stuff that is capable of painting entire body panels, so thats why I was asking about a whole quart of paint.

I'll have to defer to someone else on that one. It's been about 20 years since I last shot anything larger than a door skin so I've got no idea how far a quart of basecoat will go (don't forget to get a can of clearcoat too).
