I thought this was posted on this board somewhere but the search didn't come up with anything. Does anyone know where I can get color matched paint in the spray can, or close to stock color? I want to do a touch up on my bumper.

I got mine from Satan, for FREE. No joke, I had the guy mix up a nice little container, and then when I went to pay, he said don't worry about it. Very good match as well.
 

get the color # (printed on the inside of the doorjamb) and then go to any chain autopart place. advance auto had "summit white" mitsubushi paint, it was 3 bucks or so.

hmmm, when I was doing some rust removal last year I had taped off those stickers in the door-jamb. When I went to pull the tape off, the stickers went with them. Does anyone have that color code? I'll also check out the autoparts store to see if they just have summit white listed.

That was the one I was looking for... Thanks.

Edit: I assume Sophia White is probably the same as Summit White
 

Pepboys has "Summit White" and "Nile Black" . I just used Semi-gloss spray paint I got from Home Depot. Pretty damn close in my opinion.

I believe so, just go by the color codes.

I posted this a couple years back. Any local paint shop can mix real automotive paint in a spray can. Just bring your paint code. My local shops charges $19 a spray can for base coat. I did my belize green valve cover. Do a search I post all the info.
