If that's all that's available locally, it's worth shipping in something worth buying. Hard to believe there is no Axalta jobber anywhere near? That would open up multiple possibilities.
They couldn't care less if I bought from them or not. Lot bigger fish to fry around here, is their attitude towards the smaller shops.

That's a given, no jobber will do an actual sprayout, which is what's required to do accurate matching. Sorry to hear about your situation, makes me feel differently about where I am. Even though I live and work in flyover country, somehow we have been blessed with a variety of material choices.

I need to do something because I can't function without mixing my own paint Can't trust a jobber (any of the 3) to mix me a blendable match consistently, even when they have a panel off the car.
