Default Need help with a GW paint code?

Need help trying to find a paint code for the bottom of a two tone 2007 Great West Legend.
Due to some wind caused door damage I need to get the paint code for the bottom color.

It seems a number of GW Legends used this dark grey color during several years back then.

Any one know what it is or where I might go to find it.

I was able to get the paint code for my 2009 GW Legend from Mercedes by giving them the VIN #. But that was for the base white. I think the darker tone color on the bottom was stick on wrap. May be mistaken.

What do you need to do? My darker paint is coming off on plastic pieces, doors and wheel trim. It looks like paint with clear coat over it by how it is peeling. Body shops now do paint color matching themselves, to the color the paint is now, not the original color it was years ago.

Regards,

Mark

+1. FWIW, the clear coat on the gold color applied over the MB black and the fibreglass on my van is starting to peel.

Had the same issue with mine prior to the repaint. Seems GW may have used an inferior product; I have never seen clear coat peel like that on anything else.
