    Paint code help..

    Was unable to find a Duplicolor touch up paint because I don't have the paint code. It says the paint code is under the spare tire cover. All I see is a silver label with a bunch of numbers and I don't know which one is the paint code. I have a '09 CTS4 and the sticker says it is Crystal Red. Anyone out there know the magic code?

    You should have "505Q" in the bottom line of your Service Parts ID label. That's the code for Crystal Claret Metallic/Crystal Claret Tintcoat. My understanding is that there is color in the clear topcoat of this paint, which may make matching with touchup paint even more difficult than usual.

    You need a list of RPO codes. Many sources available. Search this forum or web. Best to save a copy on your pc once you find a complete listing.
