Post Need Touchup Paint

I need touchup paint for a "Bright Orange" (Color Code "L20C") '75 914. My local VW dealer, who I had used in the past to get 914 touchup paint, no longer carries it and can no longer (or won't) order it. Any help locating a source would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Tower Paint can mix you up a spray can using your factory color code. A few people here have used them, just do a search here to find out.

http://www.towerpaint.com/customcans.html

$14.95 for a 16 oz spray can. I plan on using them myself, but I have to send them a part to do a color match since my color is a special order from the Porsche and they don't seem to have the formula.

Same here...I have used Tower Paint for rattle cans both by factory paint code, and by sample-matching, and good results both ways. Plus, you don't even have to leave your computer to order it (if you do it by paint code at least).
