The Samba usually are a good source, but you have to remember US marketing "colors" may be different to Europe

My local motor factor makes up aerosols in any colour you want. If you want to touch up just spray into the lid and use a small brush :)

Or most larger Halfords can mix aerosols to a paint code.
