    My truck was painted with a paint called "2001 chrysler cherry PEL." The body shop has gone out of business. Can any paint experts out there help me out with the correct paint code so I can order a few quarts. Thanks!

    Just go to anyone that deals in quality paint and ask to look at their paint chip book for 2001.
    All body shops will have one. Just ask and they will be more than happy to let ya flip through it.
    All good shops will be able to ID it and match the color for ya.
    Napa has paint but the guy mixing it just goes by what the recipie calls for and usualy won't know how to match it.
    But if you are going to be doing a full on spray that isn't usualy a concern.

    PEL probably is the paint code, I don't have a book in front of me but that sounds like a Chrysler code. Some of the Chrysler reds are three stage too, so be advised.
