Has anyone attempted to paint their van? Where is the best place (I mean the best price) place to get a gallon of arctic white paint?

Any autopaint supplier.
Look for PPG , Sikkens, or Glasurite distributors
I'm a fan of Sikkens for Sprinters but PPG is almost as good .

For Landrovers as a useless ditty of info its Glasurite!

Oh, the temptation to say: gather a few dozen Sprinters and scrape ... you *might* achieve a gallon.

p.s. for the T1N, "arctic White" was paint code 9147
(but rumor had it that there were at least a couple of different "tones" seen (at least when trying to match painted parts)).

ddemenna,
If it's OEM white, it's Arctic White and the MB color code is:
9147 PAINT COLOR ARCTIC WHITE MB 9147
Enjoy!

Anyone know if it's single stage?

Depends upon the color.
White is single-dip (NCV3 and newer), single spray (T1N).

My Jasper Blue Metallic is 2 or 3 (definite different color as the undercoat, possibly clear-coat on top)

Seriously? The thread subject literally says,
"Where to get a gallon of arctic white paint"

There are MB-provided YouTube videos (many linked to in various threads here in the forum) showing the painting processes over the model years.
The T1N was manually sprayed (or at least they sure did a LOT of "touch up") and the NCV3s were dipped.
