    What about Finish Master? They should be able to mix a can of paint too.

    Might go this route to paint my lip.

    Isn't it better to go at least to Ventura?

    Isn't it all of Cali? I know my painter has been talking about the drive to go water based paints in recent years. Most states, you can walk in any automotive paint supplier and purchase the raw materials.

    Go to an automotive paint store with the code and they can match it.

    I hear one can get the good stuff (solvent based) in Nevada. I have been considering getting a paint job in TJ. I wonder how many members here have done so..
