Default Paint codes

I have the following paint IDs for the M380, and I am touching up scrapes!
The Green is a GM 422g The brown is a Jaguar BDE Roman Bronze The Red is a KIA R5 pepper red. The black is IM 200 I need the id and code for the gold, and if available does anyone have a source for the touch up paint?

Default 2004 M380 touch up paint

Here are the paint codes for the 2003 M380 and the tag from inside my 2004 M380. Seems there wasn't any change from '03 to '04. While I was a Bleakley RV Center in Jackson, Georgia last year I had their body shop scan my paint and mix up a batch of each color. I had a few small dings that I touch up with a small artist's brush and a couple of larger ones that needed sanding and an air brush to blend in the repair. I've topped them off with PPG two part clear coat. It works well.

Default Paint for M380

Hi George, We have gotten paint for touch up from:

Microfinish LLC
208 Plauche Ct
New Orleans, LA 70123

1-888-710-5192

About $20 for a 12 oz spray can plus shipping. Clear coat is $7.95 a can.
Been satified with their color matches to our codes. We have a nissan, volkswagon and a mercedes color.

Default Paint Code for BMC

I'd be interested in the paint code for the metallic blue on my 95 BMC if anyone knows it or how to find it.

Lee, The problem with paint codes is that is for new vehicles. Once your BMC, my SP or anyones Wanderlodge sits in the sun for a few years, the paint fades. A better approach is to have your paint "Read". Parts Stores that supply Body Shops with material will have a Reader. The Reader will "look" at your paint and give the paint guy a mixing formula to match your now color. Many of the parts stores can mix small amounts for touch up and I have heard of some that can load a aerosol can for you.

Anybody who is going to the CoachWorx rally in Clearwater in January can have Frank Deboer mix up some touchup for them. Talked to Frank this AM and he is happy to do it for you. He can scan the paint if it's faded and get a perfect match.
