When I said paint shop, I should have said supplier. They seemed to have the most up to date equipment and put a sample into a spray can. Their scanner was hand held.

The underside of the toolbox lid is often a good place for a sample.

The tailgate darkened up considerably compared the the prior photo I pasted of it freshly painted in the sun.

Thanks for the explanation Micah. I am going to replace a damaged section of the body and hope to get a sample from it. I will also check the tool box lid paint condition.

Here's mine. It was as close as I could find to Luzon Red at the local paint shop. They actually called it Maroon, but it's close.

That looks about right. If you look at the paint codes I posted, one of them is Maroon. They may have come up with the exact same thing. Did they scan it?
