    We have a Sherwin Williams store up the road from home.
    Perfect. I’ll look into it.

    Billy, just in case you're up to it. This is the paint I used. My local Automotive Sherwin Williams worked with me on a mix.
    We looked through the books of auto makers of 1950s and came up with these colors. My thought was they probably didn't custom mix these, just pick a color.
    I could be wrong. This did work, using Maroon from the big three in that time period.
    I shot mine a bit glossier as I wanted it this way. To get it muted, you use their de-glosser and mix according to specs to get the sheen you wish all the way down to flat 1:1 ratio
    if I remember. With the adhesion promoter and the activator in the single stage acrylic it is very durable...
    Hopefully I'll get these pics on the reply so you'll see the mix. I did notice on the Johnson's I've had, they had a tendency to be toward a bit more red or brown. These two mixes are
    towards those.. Hope this helps... 73 Jerry- gasman
