    Killstripe paint question

    So I'm going to have a lot of free time this month (moved away for summer school). I don't want to have the accurate paint color shipped over here so I was wondering if there was a good mix I could make from some common colors to get a fairly close match. There's a wal-mart around 3 minutes away from me for the time being. I don't always like their paints, but every once in a while you get a nice one.


    Any suggestions?

    I think it all depends on how picky you are.

    My ESB stripes are Line Striping Yellow blending into Popsicle Orange (both standard Home Depot colors)



    I couldn't tell you how close to perfect that is, but it looks good to me.

    I usually just grab some rattlecans and see what comes out

    If you've got a Lowe's near you, try Valspar Gloss Mustard Seed. You won't be disappointed.
