I have a 2008 Crystal Red CTS. Something hit the hood and made a couple of little places where the paint chipped off - no dings though. I want to put a dab of touch up paint on it. Where can I find the code.

I also got free touch-up paint and clearcoat from my dealer...it's worth a try.

Paint codes aside, another question is BOTTLE or PEN?

On my previous vehicles I used brush-in-cap bottled paint, and always managed to botch the job - paint too thick, lumpy, bubbles, air holes, smeared onto surrounding surfaces, etc. Now on my '08 CTS I've used primer, paint, and clearcoat pens with virtually no problems at all. YMMV.

Take a large pizza to any large GM dealership with a body shop. I almost guarantee it will get you a bottle of touch up paint. Works for me.

Today, one dealer told me to cut out the ice cream and bring gatorade. True. He is trying to lose weight.
