    I need a place I can drive my car to, have them analyse the color, and mix some matching paint. Ideally they could put it into a rattle can. I know a place in Frederick but would sure prefer somewhere in No VA.

    BAPS Auto Paints & Supply in Herndon made up a small spray can of matching paint for my 95 Mustang. But they made the paint based on the paint code not from a scan. https://bapspaint.com/stores/herndon/

    Before I had the car repainted, I had removed all the lights etc and painted the lenses with the rattle can. Here's how well it matched....
    I'm not sure if they can scan or analyze paint. But they may know who can.
