I'm doing some repair work on my 1977 320i and I've been trying to get a hold of some spray paint in the original color, which is black (#086). Nobody seems to sell the stuff -- I tried the dealer, hardware stores, NAPA, and paint stores. If they even mix spray cans in the first place, they never accomodate cars this old.
Can anyone recommend a source in the Chicago area (or someone I could mail order from) that mixes older paint? Or, does anyone know if the 77 "black" paint is the same as the late 90s "jet black?" I did find a source for that but I didn't want to order without knowing that it will match.
Thanks in advance.
