i went to the local NAPA to get some touch up paint for my TC only problem is that they only go back to 1990 so im out of luck there. Any ideas the paints looks to good to repaint the whole car but has some scratches that could use some touch up. I have a silver TC by the way.

I once found a web site that has touch up paint coded to the paint code. I dont think I bookmarked it though. They had paint for cars going back to at least the early 80s. Might try a search.

Any good bodyshop supplier should be able to you the paint you need. Look in the yellow pages for bodyshop suppliers or go to a good bodyshop and asked where they get their paint. (most likely say they do it themselves) in that case ask them to mix some for you.

Just be careful. I "touched up" my paint last year when I first got the car.... after I had it a summer, the car faded so much that the only real black anymore was the touch ups! The whole thing is going to be painted soon.
I just want my Bird back!
