Default Beige spray for polycarbonate body

Hello guys. I would like to ask you for your help to find beige spray (matt) for lexan body or any ideas how to solve it? I would like to paint my new Traction Hobby Founder 2 Jeep Wrangler with beige colour but I found out it is a big problem. Colours in sprays for PC are very limited. I wanted to use Tamiya PS but I donīt see any interesting colour so I spent 10 hours with searching and I didnīt find aby similar colour in spray for lexan body (Tamiya, Duratrax, LRP, Spaz Stix, Pactra, RC Car color, Revell..). Iīm amateur and this will by my first try to spray the body, I had before RTR cars with colored body from production. I think the only one possibiity is to use Tamiya PS-55 + some colour not suitable for PC or to change the color to white, black... I found many krylon and rust-oleum sprays for plastics in beige/antique white but they are not directly for lexan. any idea?

Either follow the tips in this thread:

Using Tamiya PS-55 flat clear with TS paints

Or purchase the Pro-Line bottled airbrush paint in Mojave Sand color:

and use an airbrush.

Finally, coat with a matte clear if the finish has too much gloss.

Thank you Durok. This is exactly the color what I would like to use. Maybe some friend of mine has an airbrush or I will be forced to use PS-55 + other non PC colour.

Quality paint that goes on smooth, dries fast, and sticks to EVERYTHING I have tried it on (unfortunately, Lexan is the one surface I have yet to try).

Nice, thank you for the tip.

I found this, it is very near to the colour I would like to use. Maybe somebody will find other colours so this could help.
