Paint Codes

I need the paint codes for a 2005 Alpine. It is Dark Brown, Light Brown, Light Gold, Light Grey - whatever!

I can't speak to the 2005 paint codes but I did have some painting done recently on my 2003. My experience and those discussed on previous threads suggest that using those paint codes is NOT reliable. The paint shop said that the Alpine Gold code for my coach was pretty close but the others were not. So, they just do a computer based color match and use whatever paint they prefer (Dupont typically ... as opposed to Diamont).

Unless you're doing the painting yourself, the paint shop can probably match the color. That's my experience.

I just had mine touched up and the painter scoffed at my "chart". His results look perfect. He says he had only one miss, when starting out.

Were did you have your rig touched up? We have a couple spots that need touch up, but not enough to pay something outragious! Was your guy reasonable and if so, who did your work?

I'm in the process of having some "dings" touched up on our 2005 Platinum Premium Exterior. The shop is doing an excellent "match" job. At one time you could get from WRV the commercial equivalent to the paints that they used so some one should have these. I found the codes on the back of a cabinet door in my rig.
It appears that you have the "Woodlands" (earthtones) color scheme although "Brandywine" (spice) had some of the same tones.

Oroville:

Most good automotive paint shops have the ability to airbrush touch ups. If that's all you need, it's much cheaper than an RV equipped place. A friend of mine from San Diego, just had a mobile service that often services his storage yard do a great job.

For bigger touch ups, The Paint Department in Corona does good work.

While my recent paint work at a different shop turned out well, I cannot vouch for their timeliness and cannot recommend them any longer.
