ok heres the deal. i want to paint my skirts. i already read all the articles and got most supplies and am readu to go except one thing...
PAINT ! i cant find it for the life of me. i got taffeta white white is brighter than any other one out there. i went to 3 auto part stores and the closest i can find is frost. they got other paints for cars but not import such as:cloud white, forst white, bright white, and a few others.

***does anyone know if any of these will match?? i called the dealer and they cant sell me my color in spray cans
im going to hit up the phone book and start calling paint places to see if they can mix something for me but wanted to post here first since i know how many smart peeps we got on here

did you check all the paint year books? they have books for each year since the automotive industry changes the colors from year to year with the new vehicles.

ok i just got off the phone with a place and they can sell me a pint of my paint for:
16$ (cost of 3 cans)
10$ pint of paint
10% to match it up to my color

he also said that he wouldtn recomend i do it with cans since "the paint might tint a bit due to the reaction of the aresol"
i ve seen peeps who did it them self and it came out good, ne comments on this???

i didnt mean 10% i meant 10$ my bad
so far this the best thing i found

also do u think i should get them to match it up to my existing color for 10$ or have them just mix it like if it were brand new?? my car is 01' but i guess i should have some fading over the last couple of years

You can buy Tafetta white paint at autozone, murrays, or any other place that sells duplicolor as furious94ls said. Plasti-Kote makes Tafetta white as well. I've used both for me car.

This part is confu5ing:
"i cant find it for the life of me. i got taffeta white white is brighter than any other one out there. "
you can't find tafetta white paint at all OR are you saying that the tafetta white you found doesn't match your car because your car is brighter?


www.paintscratch.com also sells tafetta white paints but they are pricey.

Paintscratch.com will sell you a 12.5oz spray can of taffetta white for $29.95. I would slap someone for making a decision to spend $29.95 on a can of paint that they could have bought at Autozone or any local auto parts store for $7. Cayenne Red Pearl R505P is one of the only integra colors that duplicolor doesn't make. I had to order a can of paint from paintscratch. Don't do it. You'll need two cans and that's already $60. For the amount of money spent you could get a local body shop to professionally paint them for about $80-$100. Just keep checking the local auto stores and places like hobby lobby and walmart until you find it. Also, home depot could match the paint for you if you could bring them a sample.
