1987 YJ Color

Hi , I bought a 1987 YJ Wrangler a couple weeks ago. I want to get some exterior touch up paint. I cannot find a plate with a color code. The jeep is a "Medium metallic blue" (built in Canada). Does any one know the color code, or where I can find it? The "Chilton Manual" says on "The radiator support" no luck. Other sights say under the driver seat or on the driver door jam, no luck. One sight says "bottom Deck" (I don't know what that is). This is a nice vehicle with lots of stickers but I have yet to find the color code for the exterior paint color. I don't know what the paint code would start with.
Thanks, John
