Touch up paint

Hey gang

2001 Boxster S in Lapis Blue. Need some spray touch up paint for the nose. Anyone find a good source that's compatible with the flexible panels?

I used: https://www.automotivetouchup.com/
Loved it.. I did both chips on the car and I also got a rattle can in seal gray to do the roll bar covers and they came out awesome.

That's also who I've used for several cats in the past. Color has always been a perfect match.

I haven't actually bought the kit yet, but I've heard good things about Dr. ColorChip.

Thank you all so much. I'd been searching ebay and amazon. Never heard of the others but they look promising! Especially www.automotivetouchup.com. About to go in for arm surgery but I'll get back to you once I get it ordered and tried out. I'm not about to spray paint left handed.

Interesting, apparently the 2001 986 only came in one color. https://www.automotivetouchup.com/touch-up-paint/porsche/2001/boxster/

Yeah, bug in their data apparently. Just change it to "all models"
