Exterior paint and interior codes

Thought this could help:



Code numbers can be found in the original delivery book or tag delivered with the car. If that is lost look for the numbers on the embossed plate located on the front core support under the hood. This is a typical plate (as found on a 2000 E430). Look closely here for the two three digit numbers on the left side of the plate. Note the interior code (218) is usually on top of the paint code (744).

Once you have the code number you can compare to the following chart:

Identifying my paint 2 color by name

I have an '86 560SEC, main color (Color 1) from VIN is correct, Arctik White, Code 147, Paint two code is 72. which I can't find in any of the charts. Code 172 is Anthracite grey, which from the color chart appears to be the correct color. Can anybody confirm this, or tell my where to look?

Thanks,

Shoman

GreenT... that paint code you have is not even mention about the different shades of each color. For example, my car's code #122 Pearl Grey metallic has 3 different shades. I know the same is true for #199 .

Yes, I know that now. That post was a year ago and I was just beginning to learn about all the codes.

Your cladding/bumper should be 7177 Stratus Grey according to the 126 wiki.

GreenT,

Thanks for the message. It is odd that my VIN readout gives me Arctik Whie Code 147 as the primary color, and Code 72 as the #2 color. Can't see the reason behind that, particularly since I can nowhere find that two digit code number. I'm looking into the Stratus Grey 7177.

Couldn't find the mixing information for the Stratus Grey at the paint shop, so we eyeballed it, and got right! Color is right there with the cladding. Also painted a thrice repaired right headlight surround the same color grey. My driver side headlight door is still original, as I have to get the replacement one from NC, I like the gray painted door better!
