Default Close spray paint color.

Does anybody know of a spray paint color off hand that is close to the chicle drab. Itís just going on my 30 coupe with a 32 firewall so it doesnít have to be exactly the same. If I canít find anything itís going a cream color as a last resort.

Maybe black would look good if you can't find a close color.

Go to a paint supply store. They can scan it and sell you a dab or a gallon.

Ted thatís a good idea. I may try a body shop supply place near by. I was told they match colors. Just donít want to spend a fortune for a little paint.

My local NAPA will scan and mix paint as well. They will even put it in a spray bomb if you want.

The local auto paint store near me would match your color and put it in a rattle can for about $25.00 a can. This was a couple years ago.

I’ve used this place with pretty good success.
If you only need a can or two, otherwise it’s pretty expensive.
