Where can I buy this paint?

I'm going to paint my car Matte Metallic Blue. I've searched the web and only found it in rattle cans. Does anybody know where I can buy a larger quantity? Thanks in advance.

I don't know if this is going to be a double post but...

Yes, you can have your paint supply store mix your color in single stage and add the proper amount of flattening agent to the mix to get your matte finish (if it's single stage urethane it shouldn't take much, it's hard to get a real gloss regardless).

if your using base clear, get the regular base coat apply it as you normally would and apply a matte clear over top or you use regular clear and add flattening agent to it. In this case your probably better off to use the factory pack matte clear, it'll be more consistently flat. Matte clear is available at most paint supply outlets.

Hope this helps
