    When I bought my T100 new in 2015 it came with a 3rd spare key and 3 aluminum tabs stamped with numbers. I have just now come across them and was wondering if these were the paint code numbers for the bike. I have been looking for the paint codes as I need to touch up the rear mudguard so it would be great if these numbers were what I am looking for.
    Is this possible?

    How much are you painting? Going off codes I won’t bother as silver is a no-no match. It’s more hassle than it’s outcome.
    There’s three main popular types of silver, fine medium and coarse grain. Triumph might use a straight silver for mudguards so just take it to a paint factor who can read it. Chances are just two colours are used ie silver and a drop of black which are about the most common mixes. Over the years I’ve mixed from the eye far more accurate silvers than the colours found on the swabs.
