Paint code has me confused.
Monday, May 19, 2014 6:49 PM
So I've been trying to find somewhere to get paint from cause I have some spots to fix and some spots that need touch ups from a hail storm we had a while ago but I'm not sure about the paint code I was using this site as a reference

paint website

The code on the sticker reads like this

BC/CC U 312C 52G

What's throwing me off is the 52G is that part of the code? There isn't anything after it and it's just the paint code on that whole line. According to the website I'm thinking I have to light sand drift metallic paint but the code on the site is 321C, 49, WA321C. I understand that U and WA are interchangeable but is my paint slightly different and that's why there's a 52G on my part sticker and not 49? If anyone sees something I'm missing please help me out I can't figure this out for the life of me.

Oh and if it will help I have pictures of my car in this thread

Remove your spare tire cover. If it is Original, it will have the paint code listed on it.

I have the paint code that's the one I posted in my first post but if it will help ill post a pic of the parts sticker. The problem is that I'm not sure if the 52G part is actually in the paint code or not and if it is why the paint website has 49 listed as part of the code.

Hey man I'm not finding anything about the 52G either but I called me dealer and they said they can give the exact color if you call with your vin number. They are usually nice and willing to help if you want to call them or you can send be your vin and I'll find out for you.

Ok I'm thinking I might try going to a body shop that can just match the paint or I'll just try the dealer not too far from me and see

U312C is your paint code. Dot worry about the rest. If you go to Napa, they can mix your paint code, or better yet they have variant decks they match up to your car to get the closest color(good chance your paint code will not match exactly) They'll put it in a 12oz aerosol can for $20. If your doing small spots like your mirrors or handles, thats what i would recommend. Unless you have your own spray gun & set up to spray.

Depends on your location i suppose. Some are set up to mix paint, some arent. 2 napa's near me are set up to mix PPG.
