Thumbs up Yup! Another series paint question :D

Hello fellow inmates,

I'm in need of some Marine Blue paint for my '71 109 SW. I just need two or three rattle cans as this is only for touching a few things up and spraying some door tops. I did search through the site to try and find the right place to buy from in the States, but only got more confused about it. After reading some unhappy reports about buying rattle cans of factory code paint and having them not actually match the factory color (and I'm not referring to the fact the vehicle paint fading over the years)... I'm hoping one of you kind folks has found a reputable supplier. I understand these factory code cans of paint can be pretty pricey so I'd rather avoid making any purchasing mistakes if I can.

I know that the Rustoleum Almond is perfect for our Limestone touch-ups, but that there is no close Marine Blue match. Too bad... that would've been nice.

I've not checked into any of the big paint stores local to me yet either. My gut tells me it'll more trouble than getting them from a good known supplier, but hey... I'm looking into the unknown. I've never fussed about matching factory Rover paint colors before as I've never had a nice enough rig (until now) to warrant. Oh, and my rig's got a wonderful faded patina... should make things good and tense touching things up. :D

Thank you in advance for any info

Tower paint as Bill posted above is the best option out there for rattle cans.
