Touch up paint

This is probably an old concern but here goes....Looking for touch-up paint for my 2007 Monaco Monarch. I contacted Monaco & they sent the paint codes for my coach but they do not offer paint. Does anyone know of where one might get their hands on some touch-up paint without having a quart mixed?

We have a local fellow who will mix as small as a pint (probably too much) but he is a long way from your location.

Look for an automotive paint supplier. They can mix small quantities and even put it in spray cans. I would try to take a sample panel, such as the refer vent cover, so they can match it better. Monaco gave us the paint codes but one wasn't even close.

Industrial Finishes Dist. supplied Monaco with paint. I when to one of there stores with the paint codes and they made up the touch up paint that I needed.
I see there is a store near Sacramento in Woodland CA. 95776 Ph. 530-661-6081

I ordered the 5 colors on my coach from Automotive Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch - Order Pro Grade Paint by giving them the color codes. All but one matched up perfect, and I think that was probably due to fading after 8 years.

With the codes you can go to a local RM paint dealer and they can fix you up. A lot of years they used RM paint. Know for sure they did on my 2004.

I just bought 4 colors and they mixed in 1/2 pints. It goes a long way.

I used BASF Diamont paint, it requires a hardener and the colors matched great. Not cheap though.

You can go to the BASF website and find a distributor.

Try an Automotive paint place that can scan. You'll probable get a better match due to fading. Our body guy actually has a supplier that will come to him to scan a vehicles paint. Probable why his work looks so amazing
