Why not make your own SS? Try mixing some of your left over base coat and premixed clear (mix your clear and activator first) and whala, you have a single stage touch up paint! Just mix it 1:1 base to clear. I caught that trick from Barryk a few years ago. Now I'm sure you can't do that with every combination of base and clear, but it's worth a try. I've even mixed the base w/ reducer and added the clear concoction to it and sprayed out of an air brush.
