FR3 color codes

Hi,

Anyone out there with an early FR3...2013-2014 with the Brown colored crown above the windshield? I'd like to touch up a spot but cannot find the 2 color codes anywhere in the cabinets inside the rv.

Asked customer service and they sent me one code only since the newer units have just one color...the crown being the same color as the rest of the unit.

If anyone has the code for the brown, please repond...Thanks

I had asked Travis Bird at FR the same question just to have if needed, and was given these #'s. Although he was not sure which is the darker or lighter. He was going to ask their paint dept., but never heard back from him.
The color codes are:
3381966 card
Sikkens Altek 999-2
Clear coat 77765
These were taken off a DuPont chroma premier.
I have not checked them out so, if you do, please let me know if they are any good.

FR3 Color Codes

Thanks for your information. Travis had sent me this code:
Dupont - 338196CARD

as the only code he had. This must be the light color that the newer units have as the only color. So now we know which is the dark.

I assume you would cover the color with the clear coat.

Thanks again...

Any place that sells DuPont automotive paints.

Very frustrating...took the codes to the only auto parts store in my area that sells Dupont and can mix. They looked up the Sikkens Altex 999-2 code and said it was 'Silver'. There is no silver on the FR3. I was so annoyed I did not ask them to look up the others. This process should be easier! Oh well...

About a year ago I asked for paint codes. And got the same numbers. I have an older 2014 30 DS with the chocolate colored front

I used the mushroom color code with my local paint shop to paint an extra access panel door. This is what I got from them in the Mushroom color mix.

The CARD color was the mushroom represented by the mix sheet from
My auto body shop lookup for Sickens. Sorry, I didn't need the chocolate brown color so never asked them for the paint mix.

Thanks for the mushroom mix. If I ever get the chocolate mix, I'll pass it along.
