This was a limited edition truck and the the blue may have been something other than the standard colors for that year. But it is not metallic. The Red and White codes you can up with is the same as what I was thinking. But the blue is still up for grabs.

I worked for a paint supplier a time ago what you can do is go to a auto parts store they can verify the colors that you need. You could actually get the color from a NAPA auto parts store if they sell paints and they should have some color charts and packages for that specific vehicle. Ok my freind.

I appreciate your effort but I was after all the codes so there would be no possibility of error. The paint shop has already told me they could scan the colors. Is that your final answer?
Expert:  marcpod replied 7 years ago.
