Touch up paint... how and where?

Last week, someone was using a riding lawnmower across the street from where I was parked. He hit a bunch of gravel (and kept going!) and as a result I have quite a few very small divots in my paint. And one larger area; all primarily on one slide. It is in three different color areas, so I need 3 different colors.

My coach came with touchup paint, but they dried up and I threw them away a few years ago. I have no idea what the color codes are. So now I would like to find a source for matching color touchup paint.

I think most all can be fixed with just a small drop of paint, although one area would be nice if I had color in a spray can. Anyone have any ideas on where I can get color codes, and the required touch up paint?

Thanks for your help.

Call the factory and they should be able to tell you the color codes.

Our '04 Monaco product has them on a sticker under the "skirt" on the drivers seat...

If you are stuck and can not get the paint codes a good automotive paint supply can "scan" your paint and match it. It may even be better than touch up because it will match faded paint. That said, ours came with bottles of touch up as old as the coach ('04) and I fixed a couple of small chips with it NP.

Thanks for the replies. I'll have to call the factory as there is no sticker with paint codes anywhere.

But once I get the codes, any suggested source for touch up paint?

I got my paint scanned and the paint from Lordco.
Napa used to do this.

I have the codes but scanning was better on my 02

PaintWorld - Automotive Touch Up Paint and Supplies I have used these guys for spray and touchup bottles. Good job on matching.

Our 2009 Camelot came with a grey box that contained guides and manuals for the various accesorries in the motorhome. In that box was a sheet with the paint codes. Paint was from Akzo Nobel

I just touched out my Dad's 57 chevy tonight. He put a large gouge in rear 1/4 panel. I guess at 77y/o it was inevitable. Anyway an air brush from harbor freight is invaluable and you can't tell it was even there. On my motorhome, I e-mailed Monaco my Vin.# and they gave the paint codes. I went to wesco auto body supply and they matched it perfectly. I used same airbrush and it looks great. I am sorry about the moron that sprayed your coach with rocks, some people are just clueless.
