This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

And so it was. Once I took a look at the texture files and discovered that half of them were completely identical to the base mailbox RC, half the work was done! Unfortunately, the way the box itself is textured has a metallic effect on it, so two colors that are identical on the png files don't quite match up, not in the autumn light I used to take the screencaps, and I'm not sure how to combat something like that anyway since I have no experience in editing material qualities or whatever would be required for that. I recommend mixing and matching rather than doing it all in the same colour anyway, if I'm honest.

You'll find it in Buy > Miscellaneous > Miscellaneous for §15, and all screencaps have been taken with the default color mailbox beneath.
