So i've got a new Camaro on order and i'd really like to paint it some version of Chevy's Inferno Orange. Any ideas on how to get my hands on that color, preferably in a rattle can?

I've heard some auto paint stores can mix it up for you in an aerosol can.

Hey all. Im geting ready to paint another body and this one I want to take my time with. Im looking for tip on how to do a few things. 1 how do you do the stripes over the hood/roof/trunk? im guessing lay it out on the inside of the body with fineline tape,maqsk the rest of the body and pay the stripe color then lay the body color over that? if im right YAA but am I wrong and what collors can I use so I don't have to back spray the paint with white so I dont get the see through effect, will also keep from adding paint weight to a already heavy car. Thanks
