A good example of a run on sentence that kept running away as I tried to read it.
However, I did eventually catch up.


Look here.

I have found that this company will match your paint color perfectly. You can buy it in small or large amounts.

Just a note on automotivetouchup.com. I got some touch-up from them for my '67 Corvette that had been painted about 10 years before, well maintained, and stored inside. It matched perfectly. I also got some for my '68 Corvette that was original paint from the factory. That wasn't even close. I expect that it was due to the original paint fading over the intervening 50 years, not any fault of theirs. I think they do a good job of matching the priginal non-faded colors.
