Default Touch Up Paint

I'm having trouble finding a can of spray touch up paint for my 1990 f-150.

The color code is YY.

The paint chart that came with the trucks brochure says it's 'Colonial White'. However, the closest color I can come up with is called 'Wimbledon White'.

No one seems to carry code YY.

Again, it was a common color for that year, most work trucks had it, it was that off white color.

I'd appreciate any help ......

No touch up paint ever matches... Corrosion and sun fading are the *** wipes that contribute to that.

If you have an autovalue near you they will match it using a machine. They are inexpensive and will mix and put it in a can for you. Spray and go clear and all right in it. I have used them many times and the paint is good paint. Sprays evenly and shines nicely. The matching is so close if it is different I can not tell after buffing it.
