Where in indiana are you?
Back in 2005 the EPA made changes that forced the paint companies to reformulate alot of colors and that in turn killed some of the older colors. I you have a sample any good automotive paint supplier should be able to color match the sample. If you are in northern Indiana (South bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart) I can give you a few places to try.

First off , I'm doing this for a friend , he Took his hurst wheel to paint shop , who color matched it . he brought the paint to me, I painted a sample, and it is a bronze color, when compared to wheel. I tried it with a gray primer, and a red primer, still same color. They told him color will lighten up as it dries, I told him, they are full of s***. I'm happy that he only bought a pint of paint, so we could test it first. He is lost and so I'm I ! I have different people throwing out paint codes, so I don't know what is right or wrong, at this point.
Dupont 43655L
Dupont 5309
R-M A2419
Ditzler 24149
Ditzler DDL24149
Just lost at this point, I told him to go to different paint supplier and try color match with them, maybe something is wrong with 1st suppliers camera ! Oh Decatur Indiana

When I worked painting Rv's the shop used to get supplies from
AUTOMOTIVE HARDWARE SERVICE INC in Fort Wayne.
RM I believe was their main line and they were great at color match. That was back in 2005 so I don't know for sure how they are now.

446 yellow gold wheel color is ditzler 24149,
here is a link from a hurst olds site

I never liked the color camera, the color was never close and always had to be tinted for a match. lots of spray cards until is was right.

Thanks for the help. That's where he went, Automotive hardware, and he tried Automotive color next door, both on Calhoun street. He is going to try a place in Huntington Indiana next, I wished him luck.

I just got a Nason single stage from O'Reilly's to paint the bumper on my wife's Kia Soul. The price was right but I'm not very happy with the color match. At least my wife is happy.



​​​​For my Olds I bought the paint at an auto body supply store and they matched the paint perfectly.

The paint O'Reilly's mixed for me was based on the vin. Kia Bright Silver Metallic. I think it would have been a closer match if I put down a light colored primer beneath it. All I did was prep the black plastic bumper and cover it with adhesion promoter before painting.

It turned out pretty good considering I had only ever painted the fender skirts on my 71 98. It was practice for when I spray the replacement fender for my truck.
