You should go get those custom matched aerosols that some paint stores do if you want to go w/ just a can. Otherwise yeah Autozone sells quite a few.
I did that once and the color wasn't even close to indigo...they even pulled the code out of my glovebox.

I'm pretty sure you know this, but Indigo and Pewter need to be scanned to be matched properly, because there are slight variations in color depending on where GM gets the paint. I heard silver is the same way, but havn't gotten reliable info on it yet.

It doesnt even have to be exact, Im using it to colormatch my boti so its not actually touching other blue, which would make a slight difference in color hard to notice. It will be up against a black grille. Anybody? :bawl:

I've found it very hard to find a duplicolor indigo blue spray can.
I would do what Jeff suggested. I have bought those aerosol sprays with the one stage paint from a local auto body paint supply for about $14 and they match much better.

I have looked and looked for the indigo blue, but I don't think anyone has it in an aerosol can. I have found the other colors though.

When I did my boti I got the Duplicolor paint to match my truck at Walmart.
Autozone or advance usually has alot of paint when i go in there.

I bought a qt of indigo blue from my local paint store, and had them make 1 in an aerosol for the small stuff I need to paint. Being my truck is a 95 the fresh paint does come pretty close. The aerosol cost $13. but the qt was like $60. Why so much I asked, there's 2 different color pearls in the paint. He also said that there is a lot of variations of "indigo blue".

I have run into the same problem. Can't find it in a spray can anywhere around here. Ended up getting it mixed at the paint store and it's still just a little off.

They do this at your local automotive paint store. These paint stores serve your paint shops in your area.
