Hey everyone. Here is the situation. My friend has volunteered to paint my rims, and repaint my body kit.
What is the best way to paint match the Egg Yolk Yellow color that my 01 Street Edition is?
He told me that if I chip a piece off (my kit is already flaking a bit) and give it to him, he can run it through a paint scanner or something. I don't really WANT to intentionally chip some off.. is there a better way?
I'd just like to be able to walk into Ace Hardware and say "Give me a couple gallons of Ford's Egg Yolk Yellow."
So... what's the best way to get some matching paint?
Thanks in advance!!!

If your already repainting the body kit thats on the car now.. just take a chunk off of that.. since its going to be repainted soon anyways.

Yeah... But u got to remember sun... The sun will tear the hell out of your paint... No matter what u probley will never get a perfect match... I no from experiance that u cant cuz who knows the number of layers there r in the paint, and clear types... For all i no it may even b single stage paint, and then its all down hill cuz sun will fade that bad... U jus gotta get the color code and tint is till its as close as u can go... Its hard to match paint!!! Thats the best advise i can give... Jus try an find out the type of paint and clear they used cuz every type is tinted a little different!

If you take it to a pro they can do it by matching by mixing in white or whatever to tone down the yellow if it's dulled by the sun.

have him paint with the b7 color, and then have him blend the panels, only way to get it really close
