Is it a custom color, or is it a factory color?

If it is factory (Stock) you can get colors through Color-rite, they match pretty good, but are still a bit off. Thats prolly gona be the best you can get unless you repaint the whole thing the same color.

I take a piece of the colour I want to NAPA and they stick it under a camera that spits out a mix sheet for them. It's pretty darn close to an exact match.
