Default Need some paint help.

Im in the middle of painting the golf cart. I went to the paint shop w/ my hood scoop as the sample color and said his scanner wouldnt scan the scoop so therefore he couldnt color match me a qt of paint, bla, bla, bla..
Now that it Sunday and the only place to get any paint is Homey Depot or Menards. Im wondering if they could tint up some Rustolium that i could cut w/ enamel reducer and spray. Remember, it is only the golf cart.
Any help is appreciated
Thanks,
Craig

Thanks for the input guys. I went down to Menards and found this:

Navy Blue was not dark enuff so I had the guy tint it up untill I got something real close. At least close enuff for the golf cart. I'm thinking about painting the canopy and doing the seats in Silver.
