Just iron some covering to a flat piece of balsa and take it to your PPG distributor. They should have a camera thet will take a picture of the color and match it. Then it is a simple matter of them mixing the paint off of the formula. The matches are surprisingly close.

I have had mixed results with that. I had some orange and blue matched last year. The orange was acceptable, the blue...well it is a good thing the blue was only small stripes.
I am sure this has to do with the ability of the employee as much as anything.
