Today i learned where to find the Toyota paint code.
It's on the VIN sticker which is on driver's side doorjamb.
Bottom left corner of the sticker has a "T/C" followed by a 3 character code.
If anybody needs some touchup paint for a gray Toyota with code 1H5 i have a fresh 1 oz vial that i will mail to any PF'er who can use it. (Assuming USPS will accept it)

I guessed from a color chart and was of course off a little bit, had to go back for another vial of the right color. Hate to see it go to waste.

Thanks for sharing!

I usually wound up going to the dealer and telling them what car type I had and they would get me the proper paint touch up kit.

We have a local paint supply guy who mixes paint for all the body shops in the area.
Takes him about ten minutes if you have the paint code from the VIN plate.

The instant gratification not to mention perfect match was well worth the ten bucks.

I wonder where i put vial of 1H5 ? Somebody's going to need it...
