Touch-up Paint Advice

Does anyone have any suggestions on a ggod brand/type of aout touch-uo paint for 1969 GTO (either Antique Gold or Champagne color... not 100% sure)?

I have some spots near the turn signal under the bumper and on the door jam that need touching-up.


Thanks!

I've used the stuff sold at NAPA, Kragens, etc. Have found exact matches, eyeballing it. A lot of times, it's a Toyota or Lexus color, IME.

I don't want to take that roullete spin if there is something that is designed to match already...

You could try going to an auto parts place that sells duplicolor touch up and ask to take outside to your car samples that closely match your car.

duplicolor is the stuff to use. I always have good luck eyeballing it. If it's off a shade, it's a $6 gamble. Been off one time doing many cars. The factory stuff hasn't been available for our cars for decades. Good luck.
