Default Paint codes

I need to do a few touch ups on my 95 BB. How do I find the paint codes. Is there a doc anywhere?

On my 91 the paint codes are on a sticker above the driver's windshield - you have to almost lay on the dash and look up behind the sun visor to see them.

Larry, the paint codes are for BASF paint. Have to find a paint dealer that is willing to dig to find the charts as they are not in the automatic part, but they are there, and exact match.

I also have paint codes on the back of the bus. Open the engine door, and there are several plates there with info.

I posted this yesterday but it got lost during the changeover to the new server....

In the Quote above, Dan Schrader (Buckeye Bird), said he was going to give some digital files of the 5 number BASF paint codes to John Finn at the 2014 WOG Rally. I don't know if that happened or not.

Dan is the man,, Thank Dan for taking the time to copy these charts. I found all my colors on these charts.
Be great if we had these numbers in a chart in numerical order, make find lots easier.
