I need to get some paint on the roof of my car and I believe it should have been OEW to go with the surf blue....   has anyone found a readily available spray brand that has something close?


Thanks,

Jim

I am pretty certain there will be a auto paint supply place nearby that will custom make a spray can or two of any color you want.

Search through this thread for the desired color code and take to them.

For the quick and dirty rattle can approach, may I suggest the current MINI color Pepper White is damn close to one of the OEW's.  There was more than one shade of OEW...

Chris,

Thanks for the tip.   I have a couple of air guns and a compressor, so I figured if I was going to get a custom color I may as well spray it properly.

I may yet do that, although for ABCDE (Dallas) it may just be Krylon glossy white to protect the metal until I can do the car properly.


Cheers,

Jim, Diana and Jimmy
