Default Where to buy paint?

Does anyone know where you can buy paint to repaint your car? I'm looking to repaint my hood but can't find anywhere to buy the paint from without going to a body shop and paying the middle man for getting it for me. Its OBP if that matters...

Please don't do that.

Look in the yellow pages, or internet for a local paint supply store. If that doesn't come up with anything ask a local body shop who their distributor is.

I have no experience with napa paint, so I can't compare

My car is Satin Pearl White, i needed to repair about an 8 inch long crack/rip in my lower front bumper (ice chunk on the road this winter) the SWP is a tri-coat process (white base, pearl, clear) after prep. white is the most forgiving solid color. so after the pearl and top coat went on, everything seamlessly blends, you would never know

Any auto body supply shop can mix paint for you

Or you can try

www.paintworldinc.com

www.paintscratch.com

I've had decent luck with both but never used on something as large as a hood.

Paint World is local to me, and where I have been getting my supplies for years. Awesome staff.
