Tuscan paint

 I have had paints like this mixed at most any automotive paint supplier. I would think if they have the code for Imron that they could convert it to a much safer Acrylic. Back in the 80's I took the paint code for N&W blue to a local paint supplier. I watched as he entered the codes and he said, "Oh, Norfolk and Western blue". I knew I had the right code then. Unfortunately, those codes are no longer valid. Today's match for N&W Blue is GM 708A/735 (1960) Marlin Blue. I have contemplated having some mixed, in Acrylic, to add to our decal line. Thanks, Richard D. ShellShellScale Decals

The 300 preservation society has posted that they are going to use

to restore the car to its former color.

Does anyone know how to go about obtaining a gallon or less of this paint?

Would be nice to be able to use "the real thing" on my passenger equipment.
