    Drivers door jamb, bottom left corner of the sticker, it will be two letters.
    And it's not a House of Kolors code.

    An off the shelf HOK color might be close but it's not going to match.
    Wild Strawberry will be either EK or EL

    Hell, here's the PPG formula for DBC basecoat.

    DMD1606 MAROON 237.4
    DMD1687 MED. ALUM. 314.6
    DMD622 RED 353.2
    PRL96 RUSSET PRL 386.1
    DMD1694 MAROON 414.7
    DMD1683 BLACK 431.8
    DMD1684 WHITE 439.8
    DMD1686 FINE ALUM. 445.5
    DBX1689 CLEAR 525.6

    Doesn't look like the Wild Strawberry from a distance, but if it's metallic and does a small amount of color shifting in the right light, it is.

    In direct sunlight does your car have hints of pink/purple?
