Lightbulb Merc Blue Paint, Want some cheaper?

I just paid over $20.00 a can for the High Performance Merc Blue paint! I am checking into a custom aerosol about matching and supplying me with the paint. I am ordering 24 cans to start. (If it matches)

My question is If this paint is as good as the merc and matches, how many would be interested in purchasing them at $10.00 a can? price may be more and it may be less $$ but I want a feel for how popular this may be.

take a valve cover or pulley or something with that blue to a automotive paint store and i believe they could hook you up with a color that would be durable and spray out of a gun. and in the long run cheaper.

I would be interested in a can, especially if it is better quality paint.
