Giving the store the make, model and vin# number to a car isn't going to pop up a formula for the the car. I've tried that with a few cars that had the paint code stickers removed. You still have to provide a paint code. The vin# provides the manufacturing plant origin and which variant is applicable for a match.

Thanks guys, makes more sense now. I didnt realize that a mustang would have come from different plants...or that maybe the color is used across the line and a crown vic and a mustang might have the "same" color but shot on different equipment with paint from different suppliers.
