try house of color or local car paint place ( most good ones can custom mix you up some and then put it in a aerosol can for you if you need it )

I got some colors in my head right now Im gonna go for it...I used that orange on a lot of cars lol

Been seeing all those cases in the background of your pics. How about a look at your display set-up?
