Paint code cross reference?

I'm looking for touchup paint for the lower skirt on my Forester. The bottle of touchup paint that came with my rig is dried up. I checked with Forest River and was told that the grey color on the skirt is the same as Mercedes Benz #702 paint. I just spent $42 for a can of Mercedes spray paint - #702 - silver smoke - and it's not the right color. It seems to match one of the smaller silver stripes on the side, just not the skirt.

I've given up on getting the info from Forest River so I'm trying to figure out if anyone knows where I can get the paint or if there's a cross reference somewhere that I can find the paint. I did find a label inside the kitchen cabinet that says "Paint & Graphics Solutions Inc. Sikkens Paint Code 353F2 Pewter" but when I Google that Sikkens paint code I can't find anything.

Anyone else have any luck, I know I'm not the only one out there with the standard Forester paint scheme.

Fred,
I wanted my paint codes and inside the driver door was a sticker from CB Custom Painting with Sikkens paint information. However this wasn't the color mixture codes that any Sikkens paint shop could make up. I called CB Custom Painting in Elkhardt, IN and they emailed me the mixture codes a few days later.
I would call Paint & Graphics Solutions Inc for the mixture codes.
