Default They never have my color!

Figures...every car I get does not have a paint color available in stores. Granite Metallic is the color, 900J is the code (705J is another number for it...not sure if it'* the SAME).

Does anyone know anywhere I can get it besides the dealer? Any places online? I found one place called expresspaint.com, but their 11 oz. cans are ridiculously expensive. For a color and clear coat it'* $38.

I have a feeling a dealer won't be cheap either. Maybe I'm wrong.

Yeah, same here. I'll try a dealer first I suppose. $38 for two cans that would cost me $9 in stores is a bit much.

I need more than touch up, I need an 11 oz can...or maybe 5 or 6 oz.

Heres what I can find, but looks like it'll be a little MORE expensive than the dealer at $20 a can.

Here yah go

I don't know about the cans, but the small bottle I got before wasn't much more than in the auto stores, and it was much better quality paint. So even if it is a bit more expensive, I would rather get it from the dealer.

My local Napa store will mix to your paint code. If you wanna send me your code I can score you either touch up or spray. PM me if interested.
