Does anyone know where I can find a company who will match the paint on my 1997 Saab 900 SE that sells in spray can? I'm looking to paint my grill.

first of all, u have to find the paint code. on saabs it's located on the inside of the door on the driver's side (in the u.s.) my 900se is black and the color code is 170. unfortunatly, most car part stores only have generic paints, and the saab dealers only supply touch up paint in a pen. there are a variety of internet retailers who will supply aerosol paint in 12oz cans. http://www.automotivetouchup.com/spray_paint.asp is a good site.

My car is listed as code 153. I did visit that site. Thought I would ask around before ordering. Thanks

Here's pics of how the Napa Paint looks. The paint on the grill actually looks factory. I also painted the rear panel. I ran out of clear coat, but once I put a few more coats of clear on, it'll match like the front.

Ced,

NICE!

when did you get that grill on there? Looks good. i assume you custom made that grill and attached the eyelids yourself?

Yea I cut out the grill inserts filled it all in. Lastly i molded the brows to the grill so it flow all together.

It was a hell of alot of sanding took me 3 weeks off and on. After I painted it more imperfections came out, so I still need to sand it some more. :roll:

Blaque_Out,

Nice car. I've seen it posted before. Love the way the grill looks. Great job. Napa in Charlotte NC, will mix and put into spray however they have a 7 can min.. About $10. per can.

Thanks for your input..
