    Re: Original color?

    Aside from looking in hidden places for the original color, try this:

    - Open the trunk and pull up the spare tire cover. There is a large loop inside the lid that allows you to attach it to a hook on the inside of the trunk lid.

    - On the left side of the spare tire well, or somewhere, there should be a Service Parts Identification sticker.

    - I found my paint code (30U - silver) on the bottom line, third code in from the left.

    - Paint codes are here under paint:

    Paint Codes Locations For Cadillac
    The paint code for all Cadillac cars are located on the service parts identification sticker. While the sticker is moved around from year to year, it still looks like the ones below. Most labels are white paper sticker, while more moderns ones are a silver label. While most paint codes in our database start out with a "WA", most cars and trucks will start out with a "BC/CC U". BC/CC stands for basecoat/clearcoat, and the U stands for upper or body color.

    Two Tone Models: A two toned car will have a "U" followed by the four digit color code for the body color, and an "L" followed by a four digit color code for the lower color or the bumper color.
