    It's possible. Here where I live we have Gipe Auto Color which can scan paints and mix up custom colors to match. I had them scan the back of a kick panel to have custom SEM paint mixed for restoring sun-faded plastic interior panels. It was a perfect match! Check with your local paint suppliers and see if they are able to scan paint and create mixes.
