Default matching ultracote pearl colors

Does anyone know if it's possible to match Ultracote's Pearl colors? Specifically, I'm interested in Pearl Blue, Pearl Red and Pearl Dark Yellow. I know the guys at RadioSouth do a great job with opaque colors but I'm not sure about the pearl colors.

I've checked this paint match website but they have limited colors:

Have you had any experience with this? Thanks for all your help in advance.

Best regards,
Scott

I would cover a scrap of wood and take it to your auto paint store and see if they can do it in their match computer. I have a shop here that does it and puts it in a rattle can for me and hasn't missed yet on a color.

Yes he is right I would take it to an automotive paint store too. I used to do body work and both of the paint stores around here had color eye guns that we would use to match up colors with if we could not find a match ourselves, they do a good job 9 times out of 10 at getting a close match. I think thats about your best bet for getting a matching color.
