Best Place for Spray Bombs?

I will be looking to do some shade-tree body work come the spring, and will need a rattle-can or two of my metallic argent silver. I know that Fender factory can custom mix paint but they were $20 a can about 15 years ago, so who knows how much now?

Any place locally that you can recommend getting a spray bomb from in exact colour match? I can't imagine Canadian Tire having BMW colours in stock---do they??

What about from the dealer? Mucho $$, right?

thoughts?

This. I have got a few cans from them over the years. Just make sure you have the color code, not just the color name. They're about $20.

The cans are harder to paint with than Duplicolor as the velocity of the spray is much higher, but you can achieve a great finish with them.

Try a paint place like Sherwin-Williams, I know they can put custom paint colors in spraycans.
