Check the top of the spare tire cover.There should be an RPO sticker. It should be the combination of letters and numbers at the bottom.........

I agree with getting it from the dealer. The Duplicolor stuff is quite thin and runny compared to the stuff from the dealer. It'* probably $5-6 though.

Had a ton of work done on my front end by the huge dealer in town.

Flawless, the paint is perfect. Go OE... ESPECIALLY if you have a pearled, metallic, or special paint.
