Hey!

I found a perfect match for Malaga.

My car was repainted by P.O. but i still believe its true malaga.

After the fender rolling i chipped alot of paint so my wife and i went to the drug store with a chip of paint and she found the perfect match.

REVLON 570 VIXEN $3.58

i've found for touch up, places like refurbing a trunk, under hood, etc that the hi-gloss polyurethane floor paint sold at home depot or urethane enamel sold by any paint store can be color matched to any color and the larger quantity makes it a great deal....

for kicks, i recently bought a quart of urethane enamel the same color green i'm using on my 69 , sprayed a spare hood and i can't tell the difference between it and the $180.00 gal dupont i bought

nail polish is a girl's best friend for touch ups...glad you discovered the secret

Esty, this is a really intriguing idea. What brand paint have you bought? Is it for exterior use (and presumably UV resistant)? Is it difficult to spray? Are you putting it on over automotive primer?

I've tried searching the Home Depot website, but nothing leaps out at me as an obvious choice. Does it cost extra for the color match?

bill..the paint that i spoke of in my original comments is PORTER 'glyptex' paint...there is a porter paint store located in the city where i shop and i spoke to the guys there regarding the 'toughness' of the paints and bought a qt of their brand of urethane enamel, hi-gloss for floors and metals, with high anti-rust features...

since posting that blurb..i bought a gal of Glidden polyurethane floor paint from home depot...

if you know about car paints, the toughest and easiest to spray are the urethane's and polyurethanes...they're tough as nails and buying from home depot or a local store it's cheap....

the quart from the specialty paint store cost $17.00 and the gal from home depot, iirc was $24.00 both colrs were color matched to the automotive paints i bought to do my 69 and the match is spot on

i painted the inside of trunk on the project i'm working on now with the home depot paint and it looks like a showroom paint job...very high gloss and rock hard the following day...

we've been having rain and/or threats of rain from Gustove so i haven't had much time to play outside....but as soon as the weather breaks, i'm going to see if it's 'color-sand-able' and 'buff-able'...

door jams, under hoods, inside trunks this stuff would be perfect if you don't have a show car budget...personally from all that i've determine from the listed ingredients, it's not any different from the gal of automotive urethane paint i bought at the dupont store...i'm tempted to paint my next in line 72 with this stuff....to be the guinea pig

time will tell.....good luck

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
