Anyone know any websites or chain stores I get get some touch up paint? I have an 85 300D Turbo, I think the official color is gunmetal blue, but correct me if I am wrong.

Yup, but if it's a unique color they'll have to order it from Europe. I asked our local dealer here (House of Imports). is a good source too. Make sure you know your paint code.

Just remember, the paint code is for the stock paint, prior to being on the road and in the sun for 20 years. There might be a small difference in the paint color for this reason.
Lancer is right, there might be some color fading here and there (hopefully not!) so it might look different. I dabbed my car with numerous spots of touch up (chips, nicks, etc) and plan to one day sand them down with very fine sandpaper, and then polish. That way there won't be any bulges. For now, the car looks like it has pimples [:D]
