    Frank at Carrozzeria in Livermore. He has a master paint mix apparatus, and he's the "MAN".

    Let me know if you need his number. I have it at my office.

    Frank is a master and he'll mix it dead on.

    Did you scratch that nice car already?

    Frank is the nicest guy on the planet. That being said, I would not recommend getting the touch up paint from Frank. It is too thin and extremely difficult to apply correctly. Also, since it is touch up paint, it is not going to be an exact color match. Well it is, but since we're applying it probably 20 times thicker than the paint that is already on the car, it is going to look darker. I am currently trying to figure out a way to get a "true" color match by having some custom paint mixed up that is slightly lighter than true 322. If a perfect color match is not a big deal, I would recommend getting your 322 from www.automotivetouchup.com. It is thick - the perfect consistency for touch up applications.

    Or you can just leave the lid off for a while. That thickens it up great.
