Color matched SPRAY PAINT from GM!

I no longer work for GM and can't get part numbers anymore.
Heres all the colors for our cars and the spray can part #'s so you can order them from any GM dealer.

BLACK (41U).............................12345119
OLYMPIC WHITE (50U)...............12345205
VICTORY RED (74U)..................12345539
YELLOW (34U)...........................12346642
LT TRNISH SILVER (67U)...........12346694
CASMERE MT (15U)...................12346726
EMERALD JEWEL MET (38U)........12346798
LASER BLUE MET (21U)..............12346786
SUNBURST ORANGE MET (56U)...12346722
ARRIVAL BLUE MET (91U)...........12346648
MAJESTIC AMETHYST MET (84U)..12346219
ULTRA SILVER MET (95U)............12345305
PACE BLUE (20U).......................88860746
SPORT RED MET (29U)................12346746

Now these are the color names but I would STRONGLY suggest you double check your paint code against the (--U) next to the color to be sure you ask for and order the CORRECT color! GM does change names but paint codes never change, always go by the paint code even if it has a different name. Again paint names can change from year to year and model to model but paint CODES DO NOT!

Note: these are 5oz. cans of color matched paint from GM, not aftermarket! These are the absolute closest you will ever get to matching your cars color.

Any questions?

Wow that's pretty cool. How does application work? Is it the same prepping process as touch up paint or do you just spray it on in a few coats?

Pace Blue is an 07 color. No I have not seen one in person yet.

Clear coating would be up to you and what you are doing.

Well I personaly use it to color match my calipers to the car and also to paint trim parts under the hood and I've never had a single problem with it.

My old Cavi had the calipers painted for 3 years with no issues either. The Cavi also had a painted intake manifold and coil pack cover too, no problems there either.

I'd have to say it can hadle heat just fine.

Cleaned them with Brak-Clean let them air dry, sprayed them with paint. I covered the rotor with an old plastic bag so it wouldn't get any over spray on them. I use the whole
5oz can to do all 4 calipers making many light coats so it looks better. Lots of light coats look way better then a couple thick ones.

I don't want to dispute Jackalope because he is a great asset to this community but I used GM color matched paint to do my fuel rail cover and after a month I started getting tiny bubbles in the paint. I think this holds up to heat reasonably well but when exposed to it over a long period of time it starts to bubble. I say this because I noticed it after I made a three hour drive and I think the long exposure to the heat got to it. I have now switched to a duplicolor product that matches extremely well and I have had no problems. I don't have pictures yet but I will post them up sometime.

Hmm, thats odd. I did the engine parts on my old Cavi and it held up till the day I traded it in, the new owner has showed me the car since then and the coil cover plate part was still fine, TONS of heat there sitting on top and inside of the valve cover. Same with the intake manifold, you know the ugly black plastic part between the head and the TB.

I'm not saying you didn't have issues with it as anything is quite possible and I don't take this the wrong way in the least, in fact I'm glad to hear of others experences beyond my own. All I know is I never had any problems with the stuff.

Good heads up tho Dreamer!

It's possible I just had a fluke occurance too. I thought everything was holding up well and the day I noticed it I actually was going to remove the coil cover to paint it. I then saw the bubbles which were very small, about the size of a ball point pen ball and I decided to try and find a high heat solution. All of the bubbles were in an area with in an inch of the engine itself, the rest of the cover was still in great shape.
