Current prices of paint?

Got some parts in I need to paint to match my car and unfortunately, the closest Napa store that will fill a spray can with Vista Blue is 80 miles away.

I've looked at ordering custom paint over the Net and at around $50, I'm thinking about just getting some paint locally and getting a gun and spraying the parts the right way in my shop.

However, I have no idea how much a pint of base coat and a pint of clear cost now days.

Anybody know??

Glasurit (brand mercedes,bmw,porsche,acura infinity.....) uses is about 75 to 90 bucks a pint, reducer usually comes in gallons(30-45 bucks) but some paint suppy places will sell lesser quantity, clear is expensive and nobody i know of will open a gallon which can go for 175 to 225, then activator. Internet is good but this stuff may be hazmat to ship and expensive. a lesser quality paint will be 30% less and is 40% lesser in quality.

Color Chip Selection

The site I gave is specific for WindVeil Blue but it also lists Vista Blue along with all current and prior colors.
