Don't know. I was only in a WalMart oncet, under duress; and I didn't look around.

In Oregon, on Swan Island exists https://www.oregonmetro.gov/tools-li...ome/metropaint

Recycled latex paint for $14 a gallon. I get it for $3/pint in various colors at BRING, the local recyclers.

I feel like every trip to Walmart is under duress.

I feel like my entire life is under duress!

Walmart shows ten-ounce cans of ColorPlace Gloss paint for 96, but primer and white paint are unavailable in my area.

This guy used it on his SUV: We can paint our cars in the parking lot?!

Do you think that was under duress?

That's why you Plastidip your car. If you need, you can change the color without paint or drying time.

When I was a teenager I read a Punisher comic or graphic novel where he had a van with a removable layer of paint.

I am surprised that I have not heard of anyone doing this. Back when my peers were pressuring me to Plasti-Dip my Civic I watched a bunch of videos and one guy said "Everybody asks how easily Plasti-Dip comes off. Well, I am bored, so I am peeling my car."

It only seemed to take a couple of minutes, but would you necessarily have enough time out of sight?

Just buy a Smart car and swap panels with someone else's!

There have been no enticing, cheap, manual cars in my area for quite a while. Why I'm still looking almost daily, I have no idea.

Those tiny useless things that are not smart and hardly a car?

There was a police chase involving a smrt car during quarantine.

Plot point in a movie. Thank You For Not Smoking? Lord of War? I forget.

The Reddit hive-mind thinks it's The Jackal. Bruce Willis sounds right.
