Touch up paint source

Iíve got a 2021 Greyhawk prestige 29 MVP with full body Paint. Looking to find a source for small quantity touch up paint. The sticker in the glove box says it was painted by a small shop there in Indiana and lists the Sikkens paint code numbers. I contacted the shop and they donít supply touch up paint quantities they provided their paint suppliers contact and they tell me I have to buy a minimum of a pint at $125 / pint X 3 colors! Iíve searched the web for automotive touch up paint with no luck. Anyone found a source?

See if you can cross match the paint codes at Auto Zone or Advanced Auto etc.

I took an outside storage door into an automobile paint store. Their computerize paint matching machine matched the paint perfectly and put in a spray can.

If two stage paint was originally used, then touch up will be of a different composition, as opposed to a single stage base. Solvent versus water based color coats is another issue these days since once these undercoats dry or cure, then the next coat may not melt into it creating an adhesion issue. May or may not match even if the same color recipe due to chemistry, ability to blend wet into dry and other appearance factors, not just pigment. Then there's the issue of clear coat if one was used originally. All that said, any auto body supply can cross the paint codes into PPG, Dupont etc. and also give you advice on best way to proceed with their products or even a good touch up shop that knows how to blend.

This. Any reputable auto paint shop can match your camper, even factoring fading from years of outside parking. They can mix you up a batch of paint for touchups.
