Hopefully you will get a name or two in the states you requested. But if not, contact APS Tower Paint or TCP Global and go mail order. Both companies I stated sell lacquer based paint, and TCP is a PPG Distributor. Google the names for contact information.


EDIT: Tower is in Wisconsin. TCP is in California.

TCP global has their restoration shop brand lacquer. I've purchased rallye red in the past. Perhaps give them a call and have it shipped.

Default paint

Evening... The last time I purchased lacquer paint about 2 yrs ago was from Painters Supply and Equipment, 23838 Van Dyke Ave, Warren Michigan 586-754-5600.
It was PPG, just a heads up... NOT CHEAP. Give them a call see if they still carry, if not in a hurry may be able to pick up for you, do not ship to Canada.

Just be aware that the lacquer paint sold today is nothing like the lacquer paint that was put on the car years ago it does not contain any of the nasties that made lacquer paint so good. And if you take care of it it really was good.
