Paint Codes

I bought a Backup Camera Housing and want to paint it to match before installing. I have my paint codes 607A1, yy, 314D3, but can't seem to cross them to something I can buy in an aerosol. Never had this problem before, all my other coach's had automotive paint codes that could be bought just about anywhere. One code seems to be a grey Yellow for Country Coach, one crosses to a ford yellow, and one crosses to Brown metallic Monaco color, but not sure if any are accurate. Any ideas, I'm sure someone has crossed this bridge? I have one panel I can take off, that has all my colors on it, that I could take to a parts store and see if I can match it by the cap color. Not really scientific but should get me close enough for the little cover I have to do way up high, but would rather have the correct color just in case.

You may be able to take the old one or a piece from elsewhere on the RV in to a NAPA where they will mix some to match and put it in a pressure can. I cost me $25 and the match was good. I have also gone into a car parts place and, after asking for permission, taken several of the Dupli-Color cans outside and held the caps up to compare actual color. This must be done in sunlight. We did that when the Refrigerator lower cover blew off on the road. We have a painted coach and the white replacement looked terrible.

Whichever you do you absolutely must carefully scuff the plastic, clean it with solvent and use a plastic primer that works with your paint.

A local auto body shop should be able to scan the panel you can remove and give you an exact color match

Thanks to all. I teach in a tech school and asked at the auto body shop and they said no probem. They'll take a pic of it and get me the exact mix. With any luck it will match a stock auto color I can buy off the shelf as touch up.
