Looking to refinish my non-Carvin guitar, thought Radiation Green would be cool. Is this color available in spray cans?

Probably take a little research for that query. I'd check with auto paint supply outfits. They seem to have the best variety. :)

I used to have a Triumph that was very close to Radiation Green. Triumph called it Roulette Green. My Rad Green CT and it looked like they were painted together. Sadly, I don't have any pics of them together. HTH the quest!

I had really good luck with rattle cans from automotivetouchup. Check out the 1997 Lamborghini color Verde Mura to see if it is close to what you are looking for.

That site is a good source of finishing supplies (primers, sandpaper, 2K clear, etc)

I found a color called Synergy Green that looks pretty good, used on the newer Chevy Camaro. I may try that.

Years ago Carvin told me they used PPG auto paints. I don't know if they still do today or not.
