Color match paint

Where is everyone getting the paint to do color matching? What brands are everyone using and what paint codes? My truck is blue jeans metallic and sterling grey, I tried using duplicolor's website to find which of their paint matches my truck, but cant seem to find the right paint codes. Thanks for the help!

I always just take mine to a shop and have them do it. Everything that I paint myself only lasts a couple years.

I asked the same question over on the army. Napa !!!!! I went into my local store and they mixed the paint right there. Some napas will put it in spray can but mine didn't. So.. they hooked me up with a spray kit. Glass jar..then air can on top. Works great. Half pint and kit was $35. Crappy pics. I'll get a better one.

How does it hold up? Usually I get about a year out of something that is on the front of the truck that is painted.

Really?! Thats great! I'm gonna have to talk to my local Napa about it now.

I want to have a few things painted, mainly my outer grill surround, headlights, and bumper. The big items like the bumper and grill I will take to a body shop and have them professionally painted. Its the little items, like the headlights and possibly the mirror caps that I would like to just paint myself. But I needed to find the right paint first!

Has anyone ever used automotivetouchup.com? I recently ran across the site, but have never heard any feedback on them. They have factory colors in touch up containers, rattle cans, and in pint and gallon cans.

I have thought about doing that for durability. I'm worried about paint chipping or being damaged if I paint the bumper. However, I don't know if I'll like the bumpy look of the linex compared to the smooth glossy look of the paint.

Shipping for sending your parts to be painted? I was planning on taking them to my local dealers body and paint shop.
