Question Quick way to match Apline White?

Master cylinder appears to have crapped out on my 1994 NAS 90 (again...only lasted about 20k miles!). Anyhow, the dot4 obviously does not react well with paint...and took some off the footwells (inside and out).

As such, normally I don't pull the wing to do the clutch master...but in this case I'm going to since I need to do some touch up.

Anyhow this brings me to my question - anyone find or have a good match for Alpine White that is readily available (ie hardware store, auto parts store, etc)? I have color matched paint in cans at home, but alas I'm not home and the custom paint matching places typically say 3-5 days + shipping time....but I can't have the truck down for a week or more.

Input appreciated if anyone found any *close* Alpine White matches.

Is there a NCS near you? They should have a color match there that they can put in a aerosol can for you.

National Coating Supply, our paint and body supply company. Our local one will paint match/take pictures of paint to match along with aerosol if time permits.

No NCS, but actually just found a place called Keystone that looks like they can match Alpine White from the paint code (LRC456/NUC or the PPG cross-ref 90991...looks to be Alpine/Saverine White) and have it ready tomorrow. Going to give it a shot, as where I'm painting literally will never be seen anyhow.

Jason if you have the paint code APS towers paint will match perfectly Ina great spray can. I have used them for all 6 restos I did and just ordered 4 cans for the new galvy doors on the 110

My main issue is time constraints...truck is pulled apart for a new clutch master (because the sh*t doesn't last more than 3yrs/20k miles!). It was primed today, and looking to topcoat tomorrow.

The kicker is I have 2 cans of Alpine White sitting in my garage at home that I had made up awhile ago...

Remind me to check the basement but I think I have a can of alpine white you can have as well. I know that doesn't help you right now though.

Somewhat unrelated, but what brake fluid are you using?

It's the bulkhead footwell that's INSIDE of the engine compartment...already pulled the entire fender skin to access/etc. The goal here is not to win a beauty contest (as I like to bash up my truck), but rather to continue keeping rust at bay. I mean...you can eat dinner off my bulkhead!

Anyhow....picking up the can from Keystone Autobody tomorrow morning so *should* be all set.

Castrol Dot4 (GT LMA since I'm still hoarding a few bottles of it). However, I sincerely want to consider moving to a silicone-based Dot5 after this recent BS. Speaking of which - has anyone run that in the clutch and/or braking system on a Defender?

As far as I know, Castrol LMA is not an ISO 4925 Class 6 fluid, therefore not the same as the Land Rover brake fluid. I think the Castrol is only a class 4 which is not a low viscosity brake fluid. I would recommend Pentosin DOT4 LV.

Available for purchase at the dealer? Or are there other alternate locations it is available?

Land Rover Genuine brake fluid is backordered at the moment due to an upcoming recall on the front brake hoses of L322 Range Rovers. We have been getting the Pentosin fluid from a local store at the dealership. It is worth noting that the Pentosin website says that their regular DOT 4 brake fluid is correct for Land Rovers, but that is actually not true if you look at the Land Rover spec. It needs to be a low viscosity brake fluid.
