having trouble finding a local supply source for mixing a quart of blue paint (preferably oil based enamel) to paint a whirlwind cabinet before applying decals

took a backbox decal into Ace, Sherwin Williams, Lowes and none of them say that they can match it, the blue is apparently a different shade (purer blue) than their base blue tint, so other than going to an automotive supply store for paint does any one have any ideas where i can get matching blue paint ?

no ideas on where to purchase any matching paint ?
i really don't want to use automotive paint for a cabinet respray

just looking at the paint on the can, and that looks like a really good color match so apparently it can be done

maybe i should drag the backbox into Sherwin Williams instead of the decals

wow, that 2X deep gloss blue really looks nice, going to the big box this morning to buy a can and do some samples - thanks for all the help & ideas

so i painted the cabinet with the rustoleum deep blue gloss - prolly used 18-20 cans, took forever to get a finish i was happy with, in the end it turned out pretty nice, the blue matches the new decals fairly close & owner of machine is happy with it, so am i

needs new or at least re-finished legs tho
