Anyone know if there is a modern match for Springtime Yellow. I've made some marks in my paint and I'd like to get some touch up paint. Is there something close I can use? Both areas are not in highly visible areas so I'm not concerned about a perfect match.

Found this: Springtime Yellow

I don't know about your locale, but my local O'Reilly's will mix me up a "touch up bottle", about 2oz, for $15 or so.... an aerosol can of lacquer for around $25.

Thanks Bart. There's on O'Reilly's right near my office. I'll ask them.

O’Reilly’s sells paint?? I’ll have to check them out! Especially if they can do cans of lacquer. Thanks for the tip!

Not all O'R stores mix paint, maybe 10% or 20% of their stores do. If you want a can of "standard" paint your local store can have the closest store with paint mix it and send it to them. If you need a "custom" color you will have to go to the store that has paint.

Quite true. A good paint store can match what you have, even if it's "off" or faded.

You can also get original colors from paintscratch.com. But again, does not take into consideration fading.

They've got nearly 5,500 stores, so it's a relative rarity on the paint services.....

I went to my local store and they are a no go. The guy said your more likely to see O'Reilly stores that mix paint more up north from us.

Seems easy enough to order some on line and have it shipped.
