For those wanting custom colors and color match

Found this interesting topic. Apparently ACE Hardware (a chain store in the U.S.) sells their own version of Rustoleum. Exact same stuff. The best part is they can color match it! Bring in a piece of your car or a chip or whatever you want the color of and they can scan it and you're on your way!
The topic shows a custom yellow green a fellow buys and paints his car with. He sprays the paint, but you'd get results just as good with a roller and more sanding.

I tried searching their website for the "rust stop", but came up with nothing.
This is something I'm really interested in, since sadly the color choices when it comes to Rustoleum aren't to many.
We're looking for a darker blue for our first project, and have been looking at some paint from "Benjamin Moore".

Have anyone used this?

Went to one of theirs stores here in SD, and they said they could not custom tint the ACE rust stop paint because they didn't have any data in their database on how to do it.

Talked to some guy at The Home Depot about custom tinting the regular Rusto, and he said they couldn't since its oil based? Sounds like a weird reason, but anyhow...

Mix your own. Make a color wheel with the main color and paint a disk with that and another with what color you want to mix it with and over lap them and spin it to see the color. Both disks need a slot in them so they can be rotated. This will give you a percent of each color you need.

I'd like to see some diagrams of this. Sounds like it could be a sweet idea...but I'd also like to find out what paints that are tintable and available in Canada for this application as they discontinued the tintable tremclad (IIRC)....so any help with that too would be appreciated Smile

I'm not sure if this is what he's describing but something like it should work.
