Default Paint colour matching ?

'96 Subaru Legacy "L" - Paint code 945 (Ruby Red Mica)

Duplicolour spray cans did manufacture this colour seven years ago, but no longer do so.

I can not find any local autopart stores that stock anything really close to this colour.

Any suggestions on how to proceed ?

Thanks !

I was going to use paintscratch but found a local paint shop that color matched for me. Check in your area for Automotive paint shops. It was the same amount of money and I had it the next day instead of waiting for shipping.

heh.... I just bought some touch up paint today. It didn't look like the right color and I pulled the brush out and leaned over to compare it to the car and dumped the freaking bottle all over my arm and onto the ground... I hope there's enough in there to do my touchups....
