I've been buying from them for about 5 years now. I've bought base coat in several sizes from them for doing spot repairs. So far, so good, matches were good enough for blending. Just did this.....viewtopic.php?f=13&t=27152
They usually have stuff to me within 5 to 7 days. I had one order with them that needed like a 1/2 ounce touch-up, 1/2 pint, and aerosol in the same color All were spot on to each other.... and don't laugh.....my own paint jobber once screwed that up.....

I don't understand how you can get a good match with just the paint code,
there's to many "variants" out there on some codes and they can vary a lot.
Some of the codes have several variants
I usually have to use a variant instead of the "standard" for a paint code to
get a good match.

Yeah, that is definitely true and I do run into it now and then. If it is just light touch-up work these are almost always "good enough." Maybe I'm just lucky..... :lol: I do end up going to my local paint jobber with gas cap in hand if needed. :(
