Paint formula

From Sherwin Williams in Goshen, Indiana. About 65.00 for a half pint.

Thank you. The list of colors on the right side like ocean what are the numbers to the right? Is that part of the formula?

On the Sherwin Williams color codes that was posted, do they still apply to a 2019? Model 3791RD if that matters, not full body paint.
I have several chips on the front cap I need to cover.
Thanks
Otherwise, how did you get samples from the Monte to Sherwin Williams to match? Can they match from a good quality photo?

No they didn't need the monty or a pic. They simply looked it up by year and brand and came up with the formula. I don,t know what the colour names on the right of the label mean but that label was what their computer printed to make the paint color. Since they must be working from a central data base, I would think any Sherwin Williams auto paint store should be able to access this formula. It matched my back cap very well after the clear coat was applied.

This was great info. I would never have thought Sherwin Williams has paint codes for our Montanas. For those that don't know, Lowe's carries Sherwin William's paint.

I am assuming that they are the suppliers to the Keystone contractor who supplies the painted body parts to Montana. The reason I am assuming this, is because at the national rally the techs often tell us to check with Sherwin Williams for touch up paint.

Not sure. For all I know they might only have house paints. I just sent Keystone a request for the paint codes for my 2019 trailer, which included the V.I.N. Hopefully I will hear back.

There are SW retail outlets for house paints and then there are Sw outlets that handle only auto finishes. They will probably be able to find your Montana code. Keystone has been asked many times for these codes and I have never heard of anyone who has received them.

I think the numbers on the right are the amount of each tint color (in grams) to add to the mix for the given formula. So, in short, yes.

I had a miss hap with my trailer and needed to match paint. I call Keystone and they gave me the Phone number of the company that actually mixed the paint and they were willing to match a pint and sent it to me. They were very easy to work with..

Lucky. I emailed them and they told me to contact Sherwin Williams. They have the paint code but no formula associated with it.

Here are the paint codes for our 2019. Got a quick response from Keystone.

That's exactly (I think) what I was looking for. Are these codes for Sherwin Williams paints?
