Paint Codes for a 1990 MB 190e

Question by vmancini posted 10 months ago in Mercedes-Benz

Hello all! I'm new to the Forum and this is my first post. I just bought a 1990 Mercedes Benz 190e and it's in good running condition but needs some minor cosmetic work that I'm taking upon myself.

The first and easiest will involve touch up paint. I understand that the codes for the main color are on a metal panel (under the hood?) and I plan to check there later tonight; any confirmation would be greatly appreciated.

Moreover, the Car has the main color of course but on the bottom, at about tire level, there's a lighter shade of the main color on the doors. Where would I find the paint code for that?

Thanks in advance!
