83 TA needs paint chips fixed

Hey y'all! Trying to plan ahead for warm weather and need a little bit of help.

My 83 Daytona TA has some chips in the lower body areas and they just stand out so much... Makes me cry when I notice them.

The lower body has that code-82 Dark Sand Metallic to compliment the upper half code-11 White.

My question to all you wonderful people is where could I hope to find the DSM-color paint at? I have seen some kits months ago online, but figured I'd ask if anyone knows any good sources that I can have better luck with.

This is NOT a repaint, just correcting chips that have happened with age.

Thanks y'all!

You should be able to drop by a body shop that has their own mixing bank and have a little bit made and put in a touch up bottle. If you dont have any luck, I could make you some and mail it to you...

you'll have to buy a little clear touch up bottle from an auto parts store to go over it after you put the color on......most of the parts store bottles have the paint and clear in the same bottles at opposite ends
