Default Does anyone know how to find the car'* color code or name?


I want to buy some spray paint to fix some peel off. I bought some from the Autozone but no one match to my car. I heard that the color of paint can be found from somewhere on car body. Does anyone know where it is?

This site will tell you where to look

GM - Cars - 1985 and newer the codes are in the trunk. They will be either under the rug, on top of the spare tire, or underneath the trunk lid. The codes will be on a white sticker about 3" x 4". The paint codes will be all the way on the bottom of the sticker. They are called "WA" numbers on a GM. They will consist of either 4 numbers or 3 numbers and a letter. (ex. wa8779, wa279e). The letters "WA" do not always appear, the numbers may be prefaced by bc/cc, L, or U, for upper and lower colors.

I never knew that!
