I used Duplicolor paint to repaint my fender about 5 years ago. Looks like crap now, fading etc and I need to repaint it. There are a few websites that match factory paint codes and put the paint in the spraycan for you. I would like to hear from someone who has used these websites such as = or any others that are good. In my search on the sites they do not say what type of paint they are using, lacquer, urethane or enamel. I suspect they are lacquer and I am not sold on that for long term durability. So if you have used paint from these sites or others what has your experience been and what has the long term durability and fading been? BTW, my car is black so matching should not be too far off and I am not worried about that.
Why not just go to a nearby reputable body shop and pay them $200 to sand, prep, paint, and clearcoat it. I bet you get 10 years out of it.

I'll bet they colormatch too.
