Where can I get this color?

My son (hahaha) "I'm" putting my son's Suzuki 4X4 back together after he "misjudged" a turn off roading. Anyway he is hot for this color. I think it is neon green, and since the car is already white I think I can get this effect without too much extra prep work. Does anyone know who stocks this color? I think it is semi translucent over white to get the neon effect.
Thanks,
Fred

Here is one opinion.

I think this has been photoshopped. I don't believe you can get anything that intense in a paint color.

Neon might be the closest, but my experience is that they fade badly. Unless he is going to garage it a large percentage of the time, I would not go that route.

The simplest option would be a solid mixed to the most intense color you can get. The repairability is great, and it would look good long term.

The next option would be a candy mix, over the white, but candies are also less fade resistant than conventional colors, and repairs would be tricky, without painting larger areas each time.

Life is a compromise.

Kawasaki has some very bright greens, get it mixed.

Yeah don 't go with a neon unless it sits in a garage all the time. The white base will help to make that green pop better, but you could try a really close green, and have a little green pearl mixed with the clear. Just enough to make it shimmer, and it should get you an effect sorta close in the sunlight without giving up UV resistance. Maybe a lighter green (more yellow), and go with a darker greenish pearl flake.

pretty much any auto paint store will mix it...PPG,HOK.etc..it would help if you had a code but you can look through the book or samples to find it...
It would be very difficult to paint without experiance ,it'll be what we call a tri coat (3 layers) very expensive and not so long lasting...even the pros have lots of trouble with it so I would think twice about it .....then thiink again...
75% of those jobs actually look like poopoo up close unless there done just right...

Thank you all, I had a feeling there were downsides to this choice I saw an old color called Sublime that someone added a pearl to and it was close, and as Miiler stated I would get the best UV protection with a normal more mainstream paint system

Almost looks like the Godaddy bike with a little more strong yellow.. Could be made in a 2 stage bc/cc ..put down some white first, you can do it...

It appears this is very close to the 2007 Saab green. Can't remember the name of it at the moment but it is a eye catcher for sure.

I'm pretty sure I saw a spray out of that color or something close to it recently from these guys: custom auto paint. The guy was showing me some sprayouts of speed shapes they had on some new colors and I remembered that one because it was an eye popping color.

B EAGLE I was looking at that paint all week and the only thing holding me back was the generic brand. My neighbor used their Urethane on fun project he was doing with the local kids and said it sprayed out better than some name brand stuff, so I ordered it. Only problem I see now is the Temp. on Long Island won't be much above 60 til next spring. Thanks to all!!!
