Confused About paint Codes

Hi Guys

Thanks for the ad BTW

Just picked me first ever Mercedes!!!!

Needs a little love here and there, but it is almost 17 years old

A nice 2000 320 in Silver

So first jobs are to sort out the usual interior plastic paint chipping, and sand back/treat and then spray over the rust on the arches, it's not bad compared to some I have see though!

But I am confused about what/where the exact paint code is?

I took this pic from the drivers side, but cant make it out, so if anyone can help that would be a real help



The interior is Black BTW

Here is the VIN too in case this helps

WDB1704652F202934

Cheers Guys

Boy Jeff, you weren't kidding when you said earlier data cards were pretty skimpy on details.

True that! 1996-2000 bare bones

Hi Roxanne. I am very very partial towards 548 Firemist Red but also I am also very partial towards 352 Lanarit Blue aka Bahama Blue Pearl possibly because my Birthstone is Sapphire albeit my current SLK 230 is Cubanite aka Pewter Silver Metallic.
