    I'm looking to get touch up paint scratches for my 2017 tacoma? Do I need to go to a dealer for an exact match? Is there a color code that I need to use? Thanks

    You can find the color code on the sticker when you open the drivers door.

    I purchased mine off of Amazon. It was from Toyota. As @shakerhood said, just match up the door code.

    My dealer gave me a color matched touch up paint pen since I bought it new. Maybe ask them to give you one where you bought it? Probably wishful thinking but worth a shot

    The touch up the dealers sell is a lacquer base. Works well for small chips. Light coats work well. Painter Here. :thumbsup:
