If you have a fairly good section of original color paint (still left
somewhere on the car) try taking it to the body paint supply store. I've
had them reproduce the paint with their computer. What the guy did was
press a sample against a scanner and it gave him the codes to mix the paint.
Mine came out really nice and I could not tell the difference.
