    I think Nimrod is your man on this one, he's from Lincoln and into his painting. He should be able to direct you to some paint suppliers. The ones on the net like autopaints brighton etc are too expensive plus if theres more than one shade of boston green they can't match it properly.

    Whilst your out shopping buy a measuring stick, some fine grade filters, tack cloths, panel wipe and for your paints you will need hardner/activator and basecoat thinners to make them sprayable. 2pack paints are the best for longevity and shine, for your clearcoat purchase a MS if your a beginner or HS if you've got someone with experience on hand..

    Forgot to say don't forget gloves and a proper mask (£30 or so) as the paints contain isocyanite which is absorbed through eyes/skin/nose etc and stops your breathing
