Color matched paint?

Im tired of having my white fenders and i want to paint them to match my truck. Anyone know where i can get my vehicle specific color in a rattle can or even a quart? I dont want to have to go to a shop and pay 200+ bucks to have them done. the color of my truck is "Lt. Prarie Tan" with a Metallic or clearcoat finish, if that helps.

You've got it made in so-cal. hit up an automotive refinishing place. Give them your paint code(found on your driver side door sticker) and the'll mix up a quart or a pint. I go to Indrustrial Finishes in Gresham, OR. 1/2 pint of perfectly matched factory paint ran me about $8. pint for about $15. For use in a spray gun and add clear later. Some places do single cans of spray paint...yet alot of others have a minimum of 6 cans...so it depends on the place.
