    05 CTS-V Light Platinum Paint Code?

    does anyone have the paint code for an 05 V Light Platinum? I found in the FAQs, it is the following, but doesn't mention years, or models so I wanted to make 100% sure:
    Light Platinum, color code 67U,
    Touch up paint number WA994L

    Thanks for the help and thanks to the JACK-ASS that sideswiped me!

    You too?! I just got nailed today as well?!!?

    And ditto on your question...06 V Black shows 41U and touch-up WA-8555....anyone know if this is legit as well?

    Not sure if this is a trend....but for all you V owners who drove your V today....take up two spots or leave it garaged....I'm soooo pissed!

    Good call on leaving it in the garage! Sorry that happened to you too!

    I have a body shop that picked up a used fender for me that they are going to paint to match...hoping he can get me a new Nav bezel and regular CTS arm rest while he is there, cuz those 2 things are CRAP in the V and are hard to find!

    That really sux....how bad is yours that you need a new fender....or do you just not want to take the chance of the fix not being perfect? Now you have me pondering......

    It's dented pretty good and with the "crease" or the line that is about an inch above the wheel, we both decided it would be easier to get a new fender...he got one from a junk yard that is around $250-300(I think)...hopefully the paint matches, but if not they are going to paint it. Somehow, miraculously, the bumper and door are alright though.

    Here are some pics(sorry I took the pics with my phone):

    Would be better off having a local paint supply store take color camera of your car to get correct color variation. The Light Platinum/TARNISHED SILVER has nearly 13 GM color variations now. Meaning the silver varies alot. After they take a color camera shot it will give correct variation and if not they can bring out all 13 variation to lay on car to see best match in light. You can then have them mix up say 6oz of S/S paint aka touchup paint and buy a cheap fine tip paint brush.

    @TroyFleming...thanks for the advice....the body shop guy had mentioned something about matching it by using a sample of the paint...hopefully he meant what you are talking about
