interesting discovery

I was color coding some lengths of pipe with some old spray paint, and i found a really close jeep match. I had a 5 year old can of rustoleum sunrise red, so i decided to touch up my roll bar. It is completely unnoticeable on my 95 PR4 red jeep. The key is that the paint is so old, i don't know if they still make it.

I know there are a quite a few people that are looking to keep a stock look on a budget, this is just some info to help

I personally like hitting the local auto paint store for paint. They can make a spray can for me as well.

Paints have a shelf life normally within a few years of manufacture date. Its more noticeable on specialty paints like a weldable primer.

PR4 was one of the worst colors to try to match.

Ok, I got codes mixed up. I thought pr4 was chili pepper red. I looked through my spray outs.
