Go to an auto parts store that sells auto paint. The counter guy should be able to get the paint number from the id numbers located some where on thr car. if he can't do it go to a body shop and they will know where to look to get the paint code numbers. With those numbers the auto store will beable to mix the paint you need. Only problem is if your car has been painted a different color. However, Some auto paint stores may have a devise that can read the formula of the paint and print out the required paint mixure.

Paint codes are usually on the door. When you open up the driver's door look on the inside edge. If it isn't there look for a sticker in your glove compartment. If you still can't find it.


Like Foxrun41 said, go to a parts store: Pepboys, Autozone, Advanced Auto, High Gear. Any of them should be able to help you out. Pepboys used to carry more paint than any of them (just an FYI).

Any body shop can tell you your paint code if you can't find it yourself.
