I have a small rust on my STS 2001. Does anyone know where is the color code label located. I need to find out the color code so that I can buy color to fix the the car body.

Thanks
John

Look underneath the cover above your spare tire in the trunk. Will be on a white label. I think it's 4 or so numbers on the lower right side, separate from the above characters.

Re: where is color code label of Cadillac Seville STS 2001

I found label on the spare tire cover (it is a plastic about 3 feet by 3 feet). The code is U8555. Thank you all for your feedback. Another question, once I fill small hole with body filler, do I need to use a primer before using the duplicolor auto color?

Thanks
John

Well in a professional setting, bindi isn't used to fill holes. That said, a finishing putty is used over body filler to fill in porosity before primer. Then a primer, then base, then clear.

...THAT said, you're using touch up paint, it's never going to be perfect. I'd put primer first just so the filler doesn't suck up the first coat of paint and look extra rough, and to promote adhesion.
