Car is in body shop now getting primed tomorrow doors and hood and fenders are primed and getting blocked now .I am painting the car copperhead metallic and my bodyshop uses sherwin williams paint they can't get the paint code to mix the color without using ppg paint .Does anybody know how to cross reference ppg to s&w paint or a close match to copperhead .I am working nights and have to be with my wife during the day taking her to Dr's appointments and chemo treatments so I don't have the time to do the leg work by going to the local ppg dealer and getting a paint chip and trying to match it to s&w paint chips

Email ppg or S W for the cross reference? Or call the ppg dealer yourself?
I talked to two different PPG dealers today and no paint chips are available they said they could mix up a small batch of copperhead and then I could have my painter spray it out on a test piece of metal to see if I like it the paint sells for $ 190.00 a Qt. plus clear and red. I think I will try another paint unless somebody has any other suggestions.
