I've looked under the spare cover, in the engine compartment, on the doorjambs, etc., and cannot find the code. According to paintscratch.com, a supposedly expert site, only three "whites" are possible:
WHITE 40/11/WA3967 or
WHITE CLEARCOTE 40/WA8554 or
WHITE DIAMOND PEARL 93/WA8933.

I cannot find anything close to those numbers anywhere on the car's various tags.

I really want to order a spray can of touchup paint, but it must be the right color.

???

Should be be ontop of the spare cover on a sticker. Is your car 2 tone top and bottom? if it is 2 tone you will see a number with a "U" for upper, and an "L" for lower. If you cant find it then write down your vin and call a cadillac dealer, I believe they can get the code from the vin.

If I had to guess I would think it would be the second the 3, but that is just a guess, I dont think they used pearl white that early, If I am not mistaken white diamond pearl is a very pricey 3 layer paint that came along around 95.

Good - thanks!

It's one color (white), and I was fooled by the code U8554L8554. So, you're right - it was the second of them.

Now, to order a spray can of good quality paint that won't bubble when it hits that plastic panel on the door...

Just another thought. How big an area are we talking? I used my paint code to have a local auto paint store mix me some and it was a different color due to the age difference. I did a large area and it was obvious, however mine was blue, white may be more forgiving in that aspect, just something to consider though.

This '90 now has 22k miles on it, and hasn't spent much time in the sun since new. Also, the panel to be painted is vertical - it's the plastic decorative add-on at the bottom of a rear door.

It'll look ok, I hope, but if it's obvious then I'll go to an expert.
