My wife just bought a new car (we bought the car but its hers) and I want to do an xbox in the same color and theme.

2005 VW Beetle. Color = Sundown Orange

Looks kind of red in the pic but believe me its orange.

Anyone know where I can get sundown orange spray paint. Or does someone know if I get can order some from a VW dealership. (But it wouldn't be spray paint then... would it) Any suggestions would be great.

If you're willing to pay a bit more you can always find the OEM paint at ColorRite, I've used their spray cans before and they work very well.

At autozone they list spray paint by make and model of the car. but i really have only seen like Mazda silver, and Ford Navy Blue, nothing exotic like VW Sundown Orange,

They do sell touch up in a spray can? Sweet. I thought it was only in brush on form. Thanks for the info.

First I'll try some auto stores though. Thanks for all the good ideas.
