Hi all,

Type 2 rivieria original color pastel white now somewhat different (see avatar)

I'm looking for an inexpensive spray paint that will match pastel white. Doesn't have to be perfect just fairly close. I'm looking to do my engine compartment and, eventually, my rockers. Paintscratch.com has some stuff that looks like a good match but is $25/can for the base coat.

Anybody know of a good match at a good price?

Also, I've been using VHT engine enamel for my tin, etc. They have a white color that I haven't tried. Can this be used for body paint? I know next to nothing about auto paint.

Thanks
