Use your refrigerator outside panel if it contains the color.

On our 2004 Marquis, the exterior paint colors and their "part numbers" are printed on a sheet and affixed on the back of a kitchen cupboard door.  And as Steve pointed out, usually all the exterior colors are painted onto the exterior access panel behind the fridge.  If you do not find the colors elsewhere and the color is on the access door, then take the access door behind the fridge to the paint shop.  The exterior paint colors on our Marquis were made by BASF/Diamont.  I believe BASF/Diamont was required to stop that paint formulation though.  Several years ago I got four pints of our four exterior colors for touch-up purposes from the local paint supplier to the Beaver/Monaco manufacturing facility in Bend, OR.

I have attempted to attach the Diamont formula page for the Blackstone color scheme.  Hope it is readable.

On our 06 we did touch up 3-4 times the BCS did a great job of matching using the local paint shop in Bend

I did a fair amount of touch up to multiple colors on my 99 Marquis.  My factory paint codes were on the inside of the above kitchen sink. When to the automotive paint store, they told me to do a color match as opposed to factory codes as, over time, exterior paint fades and if I went to the original  paint code or brand there would be a color difference.  They were right. I went with a small sample of the factory color on one color to find out and clearly there was a difference. Went back with the coach and they did whatever they do and matched the color on the coach and I got a perfect match in each of the four colors.

I brought the color chart the the paint store and he asked me if the chart was for a gallon or 55 gallons the chart doesn't specify the volume of the paint? Does anyone know?
