Help with paint - just lost water heater cover

We lost our water heater cover sometime this past week while on the road in Illinois during some terrible rain and winds. We were able to purchase a replacement suburban cover while on our trip - but it is GLOW IN THE DARK WHITE! I'll need to paint this cover now and am having little luck matching the paint. Ernest sent the codes - we have the same silver - gray - black paint scheme, but none of the four body/paint shops I stopped at in Albuquerque understand the codes. Originally, I was just wanting some touch up paint. Now I'll need a little more. Someone else posted a picture of a paint sticker in their door jam - unfortunately, I don't have one. I was able to find the silver - it is actually a Hyundai color. I bought a tough up pen and it is spot on. My worry now is for the black and gray colors. Can anyone provide an "equivalent" code to order?

Thanks!

My BnL owns a body shop. I can show him my touch up colors. He may be able to give me some codes. It won't be till Monday though.

Same thing happened to me. I have learned to live with the white one FR sent me. After a while you won't even notice it. That what I keep telling myself anyway.

Campin Cajun - thanks, that would be a big help. While I have always found the folks at Forest River extremely helpful, asking for paint information seems a touchy subject - like Colonel Sanders recipe!

grt1014 - that's funny! There must be nuclear molecules in the paint. It is the brightest white I've ever seen in my life. I'm going to look at it tonight in the dark just to see if it glows...

Here are the color numbers:

Dark grey - 594736
Lt grey - 631124
Blk - 23145

Diamont brand paint

Of course you'll need the hardener, clearcoat, etc....

Really not a difficult thing to do..... If I can do it, anyone can.... lol....

I have seen Ernest's paint job first hand, and it is right on.
