i'm a restorer (anyone looking for a rust free, matching everything 1955 belair convertible?).
sikens, standox and glasurit are the top of line european paints used by mercedes. standox is my personal choice and it is now owned by dupont. sikens is a product of Akzo Nobel, a worldwide leader in finishes. glasurit is owned by BASF. these brands will deliver the best match and easiest blend.
your mb was painted with a 2k system which is a base coat (colour) and catalyized clearcoat (clear and hardener).
the product i offered is a standox colour mix loaded into an aerosol can and a 2k aerosol clearcoat some really smart engineer figured out how to make a spray can with a knob on the bottom that releases the hardener inside. once released you shake it up to mix and then have about 30 minutes to shoot it before the can contents turn to rock.
the bottom line is that a small area repair (6sq ft per can set) can be made with professional results by a do-it-yourselfer. as always, prep is everything.
hope this helps.
