Does anyone know the paint code for the Trullium 4500 camper? I had a mobile painter come to paint the lower front and once he got it too dark and then had im back and he painted it too light. Help!

The original finish was gelcoat which is resin with color added, not paint like you find on cars. Paint is applied in very thin coats while gelcoat is usually quite thick and can be restored to original shine by using polishing compounds to remove the oxidized top layer. If you have applied paint over the original gelcoat you can either keep adding paint of different shades until you get it right(difficult), or sand it off and restore the original gelcoat. If you do a search on this site you can probably find a lot of info on restoring gelcoat with many different products. If you decide on restoration be aware that too much polishing can remove all the gelcoat and expose the fiberglass shell underneath.
