: Touch-Up Paint

02-21-10, 06:49 PM

I need 2 bottles of touch up-paint for my 97 SLS (Upper and Lower).

I want to get exact matches from the factory. I know my upper is Pearl White, but I'm not sure which Pearl White it is.

I tried to get them from Napa, but they said they can't match it, so I'm not sure where to look now.

How do I find out what colors I need? And where do I get them?

The last row of codes on the RPO sticker under the spare tire cover is your paint code - it will look like BC/CC X xxx x

Difficult to find - try the Sikkens or DuPont sites or Google stuff like "gm paint matching" "automotive paint colors" or some such.........GM dealers sell the rattle sticks - about $12 a pop, though.

Thanks sub.

I found the Upper color on the cover (U8933), but I couldn't find the "L" followed by 4 digits for the lower color. All there was along the same line was 424.
