Go back through the posts. That color is custom made by awlgrip which is the best but not the only option. I have the actual specs
written down somewhere if you dont locate through the posts. Your best bet is to find a member who is also looking for some and search together. i spoke to 2 guys last month who were doing just that.
Awlgrip co can give you the materials and the how to from a to z.

I painted my 13 with awlgrip outside and briteside poly inside about 5 years ago and had to repaint this year. The brightside on the inside held up well for a inexspensive one part and was very easy to apply (used a roller and tipped with a brush). When I repainted this time I used a two part made by Rustoleum. Compared to Awlgrip, it was a lot less money and trouble. I bought it at a commercial paint outlet for about $100. a gallon and rolled and tipped the outside in white, then took some of it back and they could tint the white to match the blue interior.So far it has held up great.

I had some qts of AWL-GRIP made up to match the blue. I sold 8+ qts and so far no complaints. For info go to
