    Check paintscratch.com And if I remember correctly, the codes are located on or near the spare tire fibre cover in the trunk. There also was a tremendously long code sheet posted somewhere on this forum used to interpret all of the codes on the label located in the trunk. Good luck!

    White Diamond is very hard to do. It is a tri-coat process. Base, tint & clear.

    White diamond is mucho buckos friend... Ranger is right, it's a tri coat paint that is expensive and best left for the pro's. Usually what happens with the white diamond and other tri coat paints is that you have to paint the entire section and the surrounding panels to blend it correctly. Good luck, and I hope you have good insurance.

    If it's white diamond, the paint code is 93U.

    Careful, there's more than one paint code for white diamond.... mine is a 4 digit number, I know that....

    Lift up the spare tire cover in the trunk... on the underside, is a build sheet.... mine is on the bottom of the sticker, paint code numbers.... go by those numbers.

    A review of the PPG website will not only cure your insomnia, but will show a half-dozen code numbers, all with the description "White Diamond", and there apparently are subtle differences....

    Glad you got it done and it looks good, molotov. Very difficult to match....

    I'd love to repaint my front bumper, but, I think I'm gonna let pros do it....
