2012 Zinger 31SB color code for exterior

Has anyone figured out a working color code for the Zingers? Every time it rains hard enough I lose more paint on my front cap. This is the color code Crossroads panel manufacturer gave me, e6a558, which is a hex, or base color. I'd like to buy a can or bottle of touch up if I could get a code.
Specifically the front exterior cap.

Codes are hard to come by. A match at an autobody shop may be your solution.

Well, I'd love a suggestion on how to take a piece with me so I don't have to haul the whole trailer to the shop...

would this help;

#e6a558 hex color information

Look at the tint colors that are based on this code. There might be a match for your color.

Years ago I asked CR for this info. This is what they told me:

"We do not have touch up paint but we do have a paint code to match the same color.

353A4 (95 Isuzu 824)"

I bought a spray can of this from Automotivetouchup.com (1995 Isuzu All Models Antique Silver Metallic). It was a very close match, not perfect though.

The problem I ran into was when I sprayed this, the existing paint would bubble and blister. I think the thinner in the can was too strong. Maybe a brush bottle would work better as it isn't thinned as much as a spray can.

I ended up taking a panel from the bottom skirting of the trailer to a body shop to have them match it and provide a compatible paint. This was a few weeks ago and they still have it (busy).

Once I get that, I will gladly post back.

The automotive touchup paint is probably lacquer. The original paint on the trailer may be enamel. Lacquer over enamel can cause the enamel to crinkle up. You could try applying many very thin coats.

The can claims it's an acrylic enamel.
