Default Aspen white spray paint...

I want to paint my stock sideskirts, but I'm having trouble finding a spray paint that will match Aspen White. Anyone have know of an OFF THE SHELF paint that will match at least decently?

if you cant find one off the shelf, order factory matched paint from
paintscratch.com

ask for primer with flex agent, basecoat and clearcoat with
flex agent. you'll be fine.

you dont need to sand the material, but you do need to degrease it completely and use the primer with flex agent or
adhesion promoter.

basically what kenchan said.

I've looked for paint at the stores, and i have bought a few that seemed close. I painted my skirts myself with the colors, and they were all off. I thought about buying them from paintscratch.com, but I wasn't able to find them there.

So i figure, drop out some more money and get them done professionally. Unless they start producing the Aspen White paint, I'm gonna be getting mystuff painted professionally...or someone that has the Aspen White paint.

G'luck

Buy the paint from here, http://www.paintworldinc.com/

Color code is:
Aspen or Pure White 51E

You will need the flex primer and some clear coat too...

I plan on this once I move into the new place w/ a garage...

not sure... If I had to guess, I would get 1 can of primer, 2 cans of paint, and 1 can of clear coat...

imho w/ the wrx its worth just buying the prepainted ones...
