    White Diamond Paint Code

    Hi

    Recently I had my White Diamond Escalade painted in a Texas dealer due to some chips that appeared on it. When I took it to the dealer the body shop manager looked in the glove compartment for some code, and when I asked her what she was looking for she told me the paint color. I would like to know if having this code for the color, can I buy the paint at a Cadillac Dealer or an Automotive Paint dealer.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Daniel Mejia

    You Can Go To Any Cadillac Dealer To Get The Touch-up Paint. I Will Tell You That To Try To Touch Up White Diamond Is Useless. It Looks Worse Than The Chipped Spot. In Addition, To Get The Shade Of The Paint To Match The Rest Of The Car Is Next To Impossible.

    Yes It Does. It Is A Tri-stage Paint. That Is The Reason It Is So Difficult To Match.

    There are touch up kits that have all three of that paint items in 3 different containers, base coat, middle coat and clear coat. I will post the company once I find my car items from the move.

    that's what i thought. even with all three containers, it's still going to be hard to match because pearl is 'wafted' on to the base coat.

    Your correct, I played around with the mixtures I made to get the tone right, I fixed a little scratch in the bumper that was there when I purchased the car, even knowing where it is I have a hard time finding it. The touch up from GM is not worth it, the color and tone is not even close
