Match Factory Glazier White paint for front bumper

Does anyone know the exact after market paint to use to match the factory Glazier white paint on a 1999 boxster? I bought some krylon but it didn't match perfect.

Krylon? Yeah...that won't do.
For factory matched paint, including Glacier White, go to automotivetouchup.com. No paint will be a perfect match due to paint fade and wear.

Either take off your factory gas door, take it to Gladwin, Sherwin or an O'Reilly's with paint mixing. They can scan the cap and mix you up a quart to spray on the bumper. You will need to grab some primer but Krylon spray paint in a can??

I bought a replacement bumper and had it repainted at a Porsche specialist body shop.

In addition to determining the paint code, I had to leave my car there so they could match the paint I actually had in its current condition. It's perfect.
