I kind of figured that the little plate on the strut tower was the Paint info but I wasn't sure about the Number. Thanks a lot for that.

Do you know where I can buy some of that paint?

Paint Circuit. There's one on McNicholl in the east, one on Norseman in the west. I think it's close to $30 a can. Pretty close match when I did the rockers and the licence plate trim. If you're doing a bigger piece like a bumper, then that's where you notice that it's not professionally sprayed.
