Non-original paint question
Just recently picked up a 2000 SL 500 in mint condition except for one quirk. The paint code for this vehicle is 744, Brilliant Silver, and the hood is Brilliant Silver, but the rest of the car is not. And I'm not sure what the color is.
Is there any way to get information from MB based on the VIN, in case they would have a record? If so how do you go about that?
If the paint job was done by someone else, is there a master database that body shops use that could possibly have the information?
I have a couple of chips that I'd like to touchup, but am not wanting to guess at the color.
I appreciate any help that can be provided.
