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.
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.

Re: White Diamond Paint Code
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
I bought a touch up thing at the local Caddy dealer, it appears to be a base and then clear coat two stage. Is that what the tough up is supposed to be? I tried it on the front bumper that is black under the white, and after three coats it is no where white, but very dark still. Is there a separate white that needs to be applied first?
