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.

If you have a quality auto paint store, they can mix any color you want, or any color to match your car. About a month ago, I had a place called "Mullers Auto Paint" mix a quart of paint to match my car. I was going to paint my calipers to match my car, since you can see them through the rims. Another thing I backed out of, the "purest" got the best of me.
Anyway, you do need your paint code, and the shop can mix the paint to match your car, no matter how old it is. 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.
