Is there a common off-the-shelf color that matches Meyer Yellow?

    I'd like to get a color that is pretty close to Meyer Yellow in an automotive paint. Automotive paints just hold their shine a lot longer than the cheap acrylic enamels you buy from the dealers. Anybody know of a color that is close, or have a paint number from a can of DuPont, PPG, etc that you've used to paint your plow?

    Thanks,...

    yellow

    yes and yes yellow industrial rustoleom,,,and also best add some VALSPAR Brand Hardener to the paint also,,along with using sythictic/acrylic reducer,,(fast) fast as it says on the front label for use in low tempeture..adding hardener,,makes paint hard. and the hardener also speeds up drying time...also by using just generic paint thinner takes forever to dry..if cant find industrial yellow ...use rustoleum sunrise yellow,,,quarts are like $9.00 valspar hardender at tractor supply 8 oz. can $14.00 ,,the badd is gallon of sythetic fast reducer at body shop supply stores $28.00 guesstimated prices..bestof luck....ps or school bus yellow if can find
