Unhappy GO MANGO paint matching problems! Please help

I own a 2005 Ram Daytona Go mango orange. I recently purchased a fiberglass, ARE tonneau cover and wanted to paint it to match. I also wanted to take the opportunity and fix a deep scratch that was on the bed on the passenger side.
Well, it has been a nightmare. I have tried to 2 different paint mixing places to try an match the paint and no luck! The lastest guy I went to told me that there are 8, yes that's 8 different shades of PVE (paint code for GoMango). How do I know which one is mine without having to go through the trial-and-error method, the truck has been painted 2 times already and is going back for a 3rd. Is there a way to determine which of the 8 shades does my truck have? Does the dealer sell paint? can the dealer give me a closer match using the VIN number or something? Any ideas?

you can give up a dead panel match. You will have to match it up to a alt. chip panel. Then start making paint spray outs. That color is a bitch.

Also remember plastic and smc parts will not turn out the same shade as metal parts. just look at the new z-28s.

Yes, what will36 said. Its a bitch, you make a batch, spray out a little bit, you then have to clean the paint gun, let the paint dry. If it doesn't match, tint it a little bit, respray, clean the paint gun, let it dry........................... Most shops won't go through this and just say they tried.
