Yeah, I know it isn't cheap. But the OP asked for color-matched paint, not cheap paint. He's got the code now (R342C) and the name of the color (Candy Prominence Red) so he can shop around for prices. That color-matched paint is not cheap. And in the small print, some of the colors require a primer so there could be a third can included. ;)

Way back in the day I used to be a bodyman/painter you could get a color mixed from the code.
Now days you can take a piece that is painted with the right color in to a place that sells auto paint and they can do a light test and get a formula from the test.
The local auto paint shop can do that with a small area on a part that hasn't been damaged.
Still isn't cheap but it should match exactly. Worth a try.
Let us know how it all worked out for you.
Thanks

Thanks everyone for your reply. I just want to paint a home made trailer. Nothing fancy. Some rattle can paint from say Krylon Fusion for plastic would do. I`ll try apple red and take it from there.
