Default Superduty Paint code help

so, I don't have sticker on my truck anymore that shows what the paint code would be. I know the color, but am having difficulty finding any spray cans that should match.

the name of the color is "woodland green water borne"

I need to paint a new tailgate, don't have the resources nor desire to buy real paint and spray it on etc. just looking to do a quick duplicolor job on it.

Anyone?

Thanks

Give the dealership a call with your VIN. They should be able to look it up for you. And then try to sell you a $200 can of touch-up paint.

I had a buddy who works at a ford dealership run it, it didn't give him a paint code, just a paint name.

My superduty is the same way. The paint code label is rotted off from the water, but every other dum@$$ sticker is laminated and looks great.

I need to get my codes too.

Paint code is "FV" according to the dealer I just called.

Woodland Green.

Part number for Duplicolor spray cans is T290. My local Auto Value can not get that part # anymore.

he can mix me paint, but I don't own a paint gun, an air compressor, or a place to spray it.

Was hoping to get this down by memorial day so I could use my topper......having my boat stuffed into my garage is really cramping my style....anyone want to buy a real nice boat?

I had them mix a pint, it filled 3 spray cans, I was able to get 3 coats on the tailgate and the topper, it turned out OK, but I am not a painter, and I was using spray paint.
