A while back there was a discussion about companies that could make custom colors in aerosol rattle cans. Does anyone know of such company?

A lot of local paint supply companies can do that. It's how I painted the JDM bumpers on 503 back in the day. I'm sure there's a thread around here somewhere...

This is who I used. I ordered some Belize Green from them along with clearcoat for my doglegs, mirrors and front bumper. Matched the factory color perfectly.

I have used Automotive touch up products on three cars. I also recently purchased cans from a local Finishmaster outlet. A pint of paint made three aerosol cans for about the same price as the AT price.

I like the catalyzed clear AT sells and it is very price competetive. Can is only good for two days, but provides a good factory equivalent. You can wet sand it and buff to get a good smooth finish. I am doing my 92 right now and in the sanding/buffing stage.

You can buy the empty 'can' unit and put whatever liquid paint you want to. However, why limit yourself if you're going custom color? I can see using Krylon, over-the-counter, etc. (which can be done quite well if you know what you're doing), but think it'd be better to either use a real spray gun, or even an airbrush could work well, if concerned about space, small compressor, etc...Use an inline separator-dryer on the line, of course.
