Important lesson when buying paint

Last summer, I found some plastic paint and decided to try it on my door panels. They had far too much blue and not enough red on them for the truck. I ended up buying one can each of two colors of red. I wasn’t exactly sure which red would match the other truck parts so I would have to try it and see. I though one can would be enough to paint both door panels, and it would have been. However, I ended up with four door panels and I painted two of the same side instead of one of each. This means I have to paint at least three panels, for which I did not have enough paint. That brings us to now. I thought to write down the name of the red paint I was using but not the brand. I assumed it was Krylon since they have plastic paint. Turns out I couldn’t find the same red in the store – did they quit making the color I need? Did they change the names? Bought four cans of Krylon red to repaint everything so it would all match only to get home and find out the other stuff was Rustoleum. Oops. In my defense, the three stores I looked in only had Krylon plastic paint or none at all.
