: I am doing some touch up inside the spare tire well, and need to get some paint that comes close to my mintgrun color.

: How goes a guy get a small batch mixed up for touch-up work? It does not need to be a perfect match, no one will ever see it there anyway.

If it is original paint, you should be able to go to any good automotive paint supplier (someone who carries Dupont or PPG) and they will be able to look up the paint code and mix up a quart. Should be about $35-50 for a quart. If its not original paint or they can't find it on their computer, then they can color match it. $15 or so for a color match plus the price of the paint...
