wanted - LR Alpine White rattle can paint

I know that RimmerBros and others in the UK sell LR spray paint colors but they will not ship it to the US. Does anyone know of a source on this side of the pond?

Nevermind, I found a local shop to make some in spray cans.

My local auto parts/paint shop created a can for me based on looking up the color codes. It was a match for Alpine white, just did not match the alpine white on my 17 year old truck that has not seen more than a week of garage time since I have owned it.

I'm probably going to have the same issue. Thankfully I'm just redoing the floor boards.

if they can match via the paint code, maybe they can match based on a sample from your truck? like what home depot can do? maybe take a part or two to them with the color, or a small chip, and see what they can do? or, just have them mix the paint code, and make it a shade or two lighter.

I use my local NAPA store. They will mix and fill spray cans for $16. Perfect match.

Did NAPA match by code or looking at your truck? Would be impressed if it was by looking at the truck

No, it's to code. They will do color matching as well. I'm taking a piece from my '61 in this week to get matched as I have been unable to find a mix for it. I've found several codes, but no one has the formula that maps to them.

Sand (59-61 only):
Ditzler 21844
Ditzler 38502 or
ACF/004 or 26291
