The local one cannot do the matching. They need the paint code for that color. We tried a couple that I found online. Nothing came up in their system. Gonna call the local Vespa dealer tomorrow. It's not really local, it's about 2 hours from my place

I had some painting redone. They used Sandox paint. They used the vespa paint code. Perfect match

The paint code is on the scooter somewhere, that is the question you need to be asking. What is your paint code? Someone here knows your paint code or where that code is on your scooter.
Then ANY body shop can mix it for you.

I looked there, only decal there tells me that the seat is genuine leather. No other decals there. I also checked on the glove box door. Thanks

The paint code is on the inside of the steel body shell, just below the seat hinge. You need to remove the "pet carrier" to see it.
