Has anyone ever found this color for paint that already exists and can be purchased for matching the mid-late 60's turquoise TeeNee paint? Close match is OK - does not have to be perfect.

If not, then its off to someone who will mix up some custom color for me.

Might have trouble getting this teal paint since it was a bout 50 year old Nitrocellulose paint. But It's fading so I may redo my fenders. I loved the color.

Wow, that looks great!

I have done more digging and found that Sherwin-Williams' Krylon group makes a ColorMaster Enamel in an aerosol that comes in a color called Satin Sea Glass (#53572). While it's not a gloss paint, but a satin, the color looks plenty close enough. I'm going to give it a try.

After a long time, the original paint loses its gloss, so a satin finish could be good.

A company called Gracey's still makes the Nitrocellulose "Nitro" paint. stores.ebay.com/Madisons-Music-and-Graceys-Finishes/Graceys-Vintage-Finishes-/_i.html?_fsub=1951891014&_sid=656623544&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322

I've seen it sold in quarts also.

Gracey's "Sea Foam" looks like a close match.

My paint came from a storage locker in an old Garage my Dad's friend had. I was about 18 years old when I got it. It was the last of all that paint from way back then. The label was hard to read. I'm now 55 years old.
