ADVICE NEEDED ON PAINT CHOICE

I will be painting a 2007 Chevy truck bed red that is currently white, Do you guys think Nason would match or should I use Cromax? I have not painted anything red and was wandering about the match. Do you think a half gallon will be enough for all the outside of the bed? I will be using bed liner inside.

I have Sherwin Williams pretty close by.
The B7 covers well and matches that 9260 code well, but it cost more than it is worth these days, IMO. The key to using the B7 is extra long flash times before clear, or it will bite you. I believe the Omni+ is the same as Shopline+, and I have used it in that color on an inexpensive complete. It actually covered decent and matched the dbc I had.

The jobber here has Dimension and the top line paint, Would Dimension be okay?
I haven't used that much Dimension, plus there are several grades of it. The last time I used it was a maroon met. complete, and I wasn't impressed with the base or clear (owner supplied). I would say it is worse than Shopline+, or no better for sure. Ultra 7000 reds and whites cover better than any brand I've used. 2 quarts of any of them should be plenty. B7 will cover in 2 coats over gray sealer, the others will probably take 3.
