Axis Touch Up Paint

Anyone order touch up paint for their Axis/Vegas?

I have a 2016 Axis and I'm looking for some touch up paint.

Where did you buy?

Any paint codes?

Thanks.

When the guys were fixing our impact crack they said it would be very difficult to match the base paint on the Axis and that anything they tried would still be very noticeable.

This is why we ended up with a unique Axis:

Instead they matched the dark stripe along the sides.

Last year I needed to..ahem.."rebuild" a compartment door. My local auto paint dealer had a calibrated camera to photograph my paint and match it exactly. Cannot see the difference from the old paint. But there was a surprise for me. I used some leftover paint on the other side and it was a couple of shades different. Not bad but noticeable if you look for it. The two sides had faded differently over time. Depending on how your coach has been exposed to sun and weather, it might not be that factory fresh color any more. A custom match might be your way to go. And have them shoot both sides to double check for fade.

I'm dealing with this issue right now myself. Managed to rub right rear side of our Axis up against our driveway gate. Scraped the generator access hatch and put about a 1.5" hole in the fiberglass panel just forward of this hatch. Hole and scrape can be patched with some bondo but painting the repaired area is the issue. Called Thor Customer Care for paint codes. Helpful guy there worked for about 20 min. trying to get paint codes. After all his calls and research, he came back and told me that the beige color on the Axis is actually in the gelcoat of the fiberglass and isn't paint. So, they didn't have a paint code for the beige fiberglass panels that make up the exterior of our coaches. So, took the scratched generator hatch panel to a Sherwin-Williams auto paint store in Daytona. They scanned it and determined a color code and mixed a pint of paint for me. Not cheap...that pt of paint was $60. Another $60, for a pt of clearcoat. And $10. for a qt of thinner for the paint; $130. for it all. I'm giving all this to a friend who used to be a auto body man. He'll do the bondo & paint work. Hoping it turns out well. Will advise once its done.

You can pull into a Body Shop they will put a Photo-spectrometer Camera on your rig and will automatically mix the color. Gelcoat, Stripes, etc.
