Paint codes are unique, but I have found that vinyl is also unique. The easiest way to find what vinyl from which company will match is to order samples from a company that sells vinyl from many companies.

My suggestion to @iLuveKetchup is to order samples from a company like Metrorestyling that has many shades of white vinyls. I think they have 50+.

https://www.metrorestyling.com/White...s-s/354470.htm

Samples are $1 each so I suggest ordering as many as you can to get as close as you can. Anecdotally, I have found exact matches for Raven/CBS and the old WRB when I followed the above procedure to find a match.

I just need a very small strip to cover the inside edge of the FRS Monogram headlights. I want to cover the corner much like how the BRZ headlights are covered by the front bumper (highlighted below).

Keep in mind that even though the paint and vinyl colours may be identical the difference in finish may still make them look miles apart. This goes double for anything with a pearl or metallic finish. Close enough for small projects such as this but tough to do on a much larger scale.
