Really...the sticker should be on the spare tire cover. What color is your car? If anything else, go to Pepboys or another store and look up the year of your car in the paint catalog, and go through the list of colors. You can probably figure out what it is. It'll tell you the spray can # and the touch up bottle #.

Yes! Check it! It should be the last code I think. Maybe starts with a "W". At least mine did.

Yup, mine was WA 9806. But they didn't have it in a spray can. I had to get it mixed. But I found it later to be a 1998-2000 Chrysler color.

If you get rid of all the rust and sand the paint smooth and use some rubbing compound on it, it will look and stay good for a good amount of time. Of course use some primer too.
