We have 2 locally... a Sherwin Williams Auto Paint store (Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes - Automotive Paints) , and a local auto paint shop... they were nearly the same price but I found the local guys to be more helpful. So I went with the local shop, and ironically ran into 2 guys I know who do body work coming in... now I know where the body shop guys get their supplies. So start there and ask around if google doesn't find you any answers.

DO note that if you have a big job, buying the hardener/color, etc separately is a much cheaper way. But, if you need 1 can of a specific color match (@$15-20/can) - then it's a good option.

Thanks. This is a great resource for a small, but color specific job.
