Touch Up Paint Codes?

We just got our 2008 Camelot 42PDQ and I found a box of touch up paint bottles. The bottles have dried up over time. How do I get new bottles made? Would a paint shop know these codes? See pics of what I have :

Good luck getting the paint codes. I went through this, as did others, trying to get the paint codes from Diamont that provided the paint to Monaco. After giving up after many attempts to get the proper paint codes, I removed my lower outside fridge door and had a paint shop scan the paint I needed and went that route. They mixed a small amount of paint and installed it in spray can for me. Matched close enough for the job I had. My very small amount of original touch up paint had dried up as well and as you noticed there are no codes on the bottles. Diamont refuses to release the codes for some reason.

Hi Amen; In you big Monaco box with all the manuals that apply to all the equipment in you Camelot there should be a sheet that is labled,Paint Codes. I have one in my 2001 Windsor box and had one in my previous 2000 Windsor. I don't know if you can get that info from Monaco with all the REV changes, but it would not hurt to give them a call. You could try taking those bottles to a local auto paint store and see if they could make sense of them. Also if there is some dried paint in the bottles, a little lacquer thinner in the bottles might dissolve the dried paint. I have done this in the past, but it depends on the paint base. Hope this info helps! Good luck!

You will need the paint formulas. Call Industrial Finishes in Oregon. Their phone number is (541) 485-2033. It would help if you had the paint codes. Mine were on the drivers seat base.

Paint codes meant nothing to the local auto-parts/ paint store, but if you have an auto-parts store that has a (paint photo gun). They can take a picture so to speak and make pretty close matches. Worked good for me to get the chips touched up.

Monaco used GM paint if that helps you at all.

I called Rev and they sent me this with Sherwin Williams for mine:

(But, that doesn't take into account 6 or 7 years of fade )

I need to go get some touch up paint for small scratches

Easiest way to get your touch up paint take your coach to a body shop they have a machine that will tell you exactly the color match and they can make you samples of all your different colors

Take your coach to a body shop they have a machine that can match any color you have and they could make samples for you . You donít need the code number .
