    Any paint shop should be able to match the paint.

    just a word of warning, most paint shops have different brands, as for as little as you will need stay away from the cheap ones, they may look close but it you get the car out in the sun it will show. Dont know if you have O'Reilly's down there but the sherwin williams paint they have is very good stuff. if your looking for the rattle can spray, it'll be close but not perfect, its the same for all the GM pewters, but the mixing formulas for them change from year to year, and its even a little different depending on the model (camaro,firebird, and the trucks.....etc)

    The mixing formulas are different for each paint company too(ppg, dupont, sherman williams etc).
