Where can I get paint?

I'm having trouble finding spray cans of Marine Blue for my '67 Series 2a. Paddock can't ship to the U.S. Any suggestions?

Thanks, but ...

Thanks for the reply. I did call several local paint shops including Napa but none could match the paint codes that I found on the Internet.

I had trouble finding anyone in Houston that recognized my paint codes but these guys did not miss a beat. Found them from recommendations here on the forum.

Pretty much any automotive paint supply can not only computer match your truck's body color, they can also make up aerosol cans for you. You just need to go to a store where they know what the heck they are doing.
Look for automotive paint in your local google search.

PS just did a quick search and there are literally dozens of places near you. Sherwin-Williams is closest they have all you need.

Go to a professional automotive paint store and have them color match the paint (they have a portable scanner, usually) or you can go from the codes you can find online. PPG paint code Land Rover marine blue is 16514 and can be used in most of their paint lines I just painted some of my project with their single stage, urethane shopline, Or pangolin 4x4 sells rattle cans for $22.

Correct, patina is a function of age, exposure to UV etc...
That's why you would go to an automotive paint shop and have them match the existing paint color. The Old lacquer based paint ages, gets chalky and is probably faded. Single stage urethane is self glossing and is the closest thing to lacquer, it does not require a clear coat so it doesn't have the depth of gloss that looks odd on older cars. Note: any modern paint will look a little different than the original. Also I recommend Watching Overland videos on YouTube they describe their philosophy on paint matching. They actually have a marine blue restoration project shown that looks awesome, http://Www.northamericaoverland.com/...e-restoration/

According to the Rover Club of Sweden, Glasurit is the original factory paint. Marine Blue is color code JCC and also shows as aux color code BLVC515. It's a Line 22 single-stage. You can look up the colors, formula, and calculate how much you need here: http://coloronline.glasurit.com/index.php. (Select Rover as the manufacturer.) You can look up a distributor here: BASF Refinish - Find a Distributor.

This is what I used, it requires a paint gun, hardener and reducer.
