Not sure why you're confused ? Just Google or use a phone book for your area for automotive paint shops.
Here's a google search for the Ft Lauderdale area as an example.

A good high resolution photo with a good digital camera and Photoshop will be more useful than that so called code.
When I had some body damage repaired I gave the shop the color scheme of my coach. They didn't use it. Instead the paint store sent a guy with a camera. The resultant paint matched perfectly.

I had to repaint 3 of my basement doors and part of the front slide after my wife hit a pole at a filling station. I have a 4 color paint scheme, 3 shades of green and 1 black.

I got the paint codes from Monaco and I believe it said they used BASF Diamont paint. The paint is a 2 part system, you will have to buy a hardener and possibly thinner to spray it correctly.

The paint job turned out very good (for an amateur) color match was perfect.

Here is a link to the BASF distributor locator.

"frankfera"......If you look locally, you should be able to find an automotive paint store. Often having the color code doesn't work well with RV's. Look to see if the bumper color runs through the outside refer door. If it does, take the door to the paint shop and let them match it.

Most automotive paint stores will sell you the paint two ways. You can buy a pint/quart or you can have them load it in a spray can. Most two part paints as discussed above, can be bought as an all in one paint. If you buy it by a pint or quart can, you'll need to mix with thinners and hardeners. The paint shop will have all of these and print up the ratio you need if you want to use a paint sprayer. If you think you want to try your hand at something better than a rattle can, go to Harbor Freight and buy one of their small sprayers.....you will need a compressor though.
