Have you tried the FBO at Tullahoma for possible contact info? Loehle, at one time, used to do some of their work out of one of the hangars there. The Google picture of the area is exactly what the area looks like, Actually, not a bad place.

I found a paint shop in Amarillo that told me they would not give up until they match it.
Headed that way tomorrow.
Thanks for the replies.

Thanks. I gave them a call and they gave me a couple of phone numbers to call.
I tried both and either no longer in service or no answer, but was the best lead I have had so far.

I called GLO custom last week to see about getting my RV in there for paint, and they said they have right at a one-year wait right now for new airplanes. I'm going to need to do something sooner than that, any good paint shop recommendations in Texas?

My (limited) experience with their products is that much if not all is that it was something that was simply relabeled. That's not to say that thought was not put into the product selection...

If your paint shop or paint supplier cannot match it, you need a different paint shop/supplier. Sometimes it might take an attempt of two, but I have never seen something that cannot be matched with a little creativity and effort...
