Default NEED Tungsten Pearl aftermarket spray paint

Does anyone know where I can get Tungsten Pearl aftermarket spray paint? What brand/color code matches up? Where can I get it- pepboys, autozone etc? ( I found the OEM spray paint but I don't want to spend $25 )

Thanks for your help!

They have OEM Tungsten Pearl spray paint? I only know of touch-up paint. Spray paint can't possible be a good match, right?

Get the touch up paint from the dealer...

I'm looking for the same thing but only to paint a plastic model I'm building of an IS250. I used the hobby paint metalic silver and when I put the plastic model up to my car the paint is no where near close to it .

Don't go to dealership, Sewell has all the colors you need.

Dealers do not carry spray paint only touch up paint. Try going to a automotive paint supply store (in TX I go to AJ Foyt). They make made to order spray cans with your car code which is 1g1. If you do go that route make sure you get a two stage clear coat and not the dupli-color clear. I just finished painting a front lip in TP, but the color is close, but not exact.

Thanx, I'm going to give them a try for the paint for my IS250 model.

Any Automotive store that carries automotive spray paint. The paint code is Toyota No. 1G1.

Again, don't look for the color name, Look for the Toyota color code
