Hello

I've done some searching and think I've figured out the paint code, however, I'd like more opinions before I order it. Here's a pic of the plate on the core support.

Regards,

Dan

Hay...thanks for the reply! That is what I thought it was too. However, when looking at the the color chip it didn't look very close. The pic I poted is close to being actual color.

Here's the link to the chip: (edit.... the link didn't save my selection...so one has to start at the begining and select the year and stuff)

Check out this link-- there's a "body tag" button on the lower left that will tell you how to decode the whole thing. Also check out the "accessories" button-- it lists the codes for various options.

Here's a thread I had on a great paint-code resource:

Lastly, here's a link to a VIN decoder-- not as good as the old Russian site, but it will get you somewhere...

Guys

Thanks for all of the help with verifying the color.

This is a customers car....I'll see if I get a pic before it leaves.

Okay....where to get the paint?

Now that I have the paint code, where besides the dealer, can I get this color? 473m?

Thanks again for all of the help finding the paint items.

A 12oz spray can has just been ordered from Automotive Finishes at the sum of $39.00!
