Where can I buy just a little ready to shoot GREEN GRANITE paint?

I am buying a spray gun from harbor freight to spray some basic bad paint spots on my 1966 911. Where can I get Green Granite paint that is ready to shoot for my car? Also, is the paint code on the L699?

A lot of paint supply places can mix and put paint into a spray can for you. Otherwise the minimum is usually a pint. But there is a very slim chance that any newly mixed paint will match your old paint closely enough not to be extremely obvious. The only way you will get a good looking job is to either take the car to somewhere to be touched up that can mix the paint on site until they get a match, or repaint the whole car.

Thanks Robert

The areas that need attention are like in the rain gutters there is two spots and at the base of the windshield frame. Nothing like mid-door or anything. So whatever gets painted will be essentially fully hidden.

I thought there was a website that sold single stage paint but I cannot find it.

painting

Once you have the paint I've used a preval sprayer.
This is one of the coolest gizmos I've have found for the $$$.
Check out JamestownDistributors.com.
A sprayer & jar cost around $6.00 a piece. The shipping will cost more than the actual sprayer & jar, but does a creditable job and no spray guns, hoses, etc.
Try it a couple of test runs to get familiar with the thing, but their great!
Good luck!
Rob
