Well, from one fellow Canuck to another . . . I'm thinking you might as well give up. I've already talked to the company that distributes Rustoleum in Canada . . . they won't let you order from them, and they've said that really your best bet is to try to convince your local Home Depot to order it for you.

I've asked at 4 now, and they won't do it.

Right now I'm looking into getting a paint store to custom match the colours and put them in a spray can for me. I'll post my results in the general info thread . . if there are any results to be had! :)

Hello fellow Canadians eh!... I to couldn't find any colour paint to match that well that all those americans are able to find... but I finally figured that if you hit one of those folk art shops that do all those paint craft things.... well they have a million different type of colour paint on their shelves.. All arcylic thought, but put it through a airbrush and you got a wicked finish... and I found colours that are almost dead on, or atleast what I thought were pretty close....close enought anyhow.

So you might want to give that a shot... Good luck eh!.

The problem I had when I went to the craft store when I was thinking of doing the airbrush thing is . . . all the paints come in tubes and, there didn't appear to be a good way of telling what the colour was inside other than the bad print job on the front of the tube where about 4 different shades seemed to have the same colour swatch on the front! :)

Can't somebody close to the border send you a couple cans of paint by the mail that doesn't go on airplanes? Heck, I've been stumbling over that sage green stuff at some of the Home Depots. It'd be cheaper if someone could ship from the northern states.
