Question Anybody know the paint code......?

Anybody know the paint code for the white on a 93 SL2? I can't seem to find it anywhere on my car or in the book . I called the dealership and got put on eternal hold which kinda ticked me off, I'm getting ready to paint the trunk lid and spoiler and really need to find it . Thanks for the help in advance!

paintscratch.com is good for getting the code. it at least narrows down the options.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

xupthree60- If you've ever seen a white saturn that has just been cleaned, it looks just like it came off the showroom floor. On other cars the color fades, but not on a saturn

The code is 40/WA9563 "White Clearcoat"

im not saying its hard cuz the white isnt clean. im saying its hard to match white colors cuz u notice veriations so much more than other colors. u have to actualy make the color, dulicolor and people like that have their way of making colors (i dunno how) but also the factory and paint shops mix the colors using a computerized scale, it says had .5grams of blue 5 or whatever and so on then they mix it up and u have ur color. so it basicly imposible to get 2 cans of paint the exact same color, u dont notice it on darker colors but on white its very noticiable.

its the same thing somtimes car companys will paint the bumpers and the rest of the car on different sides of a factory and the finished car comes out with bumpers that dont match the car.

ask any painter and they will tell u that white is the hardest color to match, and close to imposible, u have to fade it and fading is not something a amature painter can do.

someone on here said their car was 3 shades of white the other day. blamed it on duplicolor. duplicolor provided the corect paint code, its just hard to match white.

this car should be painted with the trunk on the car, spoiler off. the trunk should be faded to the rest of the car and the spoiler should be painted with the same can of paint used for the trunk

Paint shops use a special camera to match the color. They can even mix the paint and put it in a spray can for you. All for around $20

White? Get the WHOLE CAR repainted a good color, like jet black or metallic blue.

I like my white SL2. So far I have only seen a few around hear that are white and none of them look near as good as mine. The trunk lid and spoiler came off of the parts car I got for $100 and need some desperate attention, it's white also, so I am going to paint it and put it on my car. After I get it done I will post the pics to let ya'all be the judge. BTW the sawtooth rims and driving lights, as well as the cruise and front and rear pass. side door panels have already made it to my car and you can't tell it didn't come factory like that.

you can always remove scratches and whatnot because there is a clear coat on the paint... you know that! lol
