Paint color codes

Does anyone know how to get the paint color codes (or the paint) for the exterior of a 2017 Wildwood? I put a small scrape on the back and would like to touch it up. I need the brown/bronze color that is along the bottom. Does the VIN number contain the codes as it does on autos? Will FR assist with this? Thanks.

Check inside your cabinets. You may find a color chip label stuck to one of the back walls.

I've found no color chips. I did email FR, hopefully that will work.

FR responded very quickly with the paint code chart. I was going to post the file bit can't figure out how.

Well the codes were not helpful. FR uses industrial coatings that are baked on, something you can't reproduce at home. The auto paint suppliers could not cross reference the number to anything they can mix. Apparently they will have to have a sample of the original material and do a color analysis to produce a close match. It is not likely to be an exact match.

Any truck body shop can bake on enamel. It’s just a forced dry condition for production. Faster means less trash. A good paint supply will have a spectrophotometer. The NAPA store I ran had one.

A good body shop can bake it, but not something we can do at home. I understand a spectrophotometer can do a close match, which hopefully will be close enough to hide my scrapes.
