PM me the last 5 digits of your VIN number. I'll have to find out what paint shop it came from.

Is this post for anyone looking for paint? I sent you a PM on 3/18 and have not heard back. Any help is appreciated.

I guess Josh must have quit or is on a long vacation. Not answering back. Does anyone know who may have taken his place?

Thank you. I messaged Josh. He was too busy and gave me the phone number of Parts. I called that number and was referred to the paint shop. I called the paint shop and the lady there was very helpful. She said my unit was not painted in their shop, but she gave me the codes. They are as they appear in your photo. I went to the Sikkens Web site to see where I could buy the paint, but I could not find anything on their site that corresponded to these paint codes. I will have to call Sikkens. I suppose a body shop would know what to do with them. I will make a paint code sticker for my Solera. Thanks, again, for posting the photo.

Any good paint store for vehicles will have a computer full of paint codes. They can mix a container or even a spray can. Years ago, I pulled my trailer to a paint store and they scanned five colors with a small hand held scanner they brought outside. They went inside the store, plugged the scanner into their computer and it ran the exact color match formula. Though you have a 2016, others that have a unit older should realize paint fades. This will require the scanner for a perfect match. My cost for the scans was free! Gave them $20.00 for a pizza and left.

could you share a phone number? Any help is appreciated. I would rather have the codes than a scan for now. I want to paint my small enclosed trailer.
