Anyone Have A Monaco Paint Code "Decoder Ring"?

I need to touch up a few chips and scratches and I found my the paint code on the driver's seat pedestal. Diamont R.M 02 5073. I've Googled the daylights out of every combination of the code and all I can find is that the color is likely from a mid-to-late eighties Buick base coat. Monaco calls it "Flint" which is a gray with brownish undertones. Area body shops don't seem inclined to help me unless I have them work on it (I understand that). I'm also told that these days a shop just takes a picture of the paint and has the computer match it up then feather it in. I don't have a large area needing paint just a few "age spots". Any help would be appreciated.

I have the paint codes for my 2002 Windsor but not your color.
Not sure if you have a Lordco, but they have the camera for taking
the paint colors. They will also mix it for you.
You might try Nappa also

I called Monaco Tech Support and they sent me a formulation sheet for each color on my coach. I took those sheets to an auto paint supplier along with the access door from the refrigerator (it had all four colors on it) and they mixed the paint.

There's generally a local shop that's selling paint to the body shops. That's where you want to go for help. Finding one that's using a computer matching system would be part of a good plan as well.
