how do you find your color code on the car. Of course mine is silver but it is probably a specific silver e.g. like red has fire engine red, etc..

Some makes have their color codes on the door.

If I go to the dealership & gave them my paint code could they find this paint for my '95 Cavalier LS Convertible? My '04 Cavalier LS Sport Coupe uses the same Rally Yellow as Cobalt Coupes so no problems there.

$15 is a tad high, IF I remember correctly it should be around $10 or so retail cost.

No he is probably right. I think mine was that much. It's because of the new shipping laws after 9/11. Paint is in a separate category.

I painted my fuel rail cover with GM Victory Red. It kind of matches...........

Ok guys as I've said I don't know how many times now CHECK YOUR CARS PAINT CODE AND YOU TELL ME! Geez! Look GM calls the same color like 6 different names sometimes so all you can do is go off the RPO codes located under the trunk carpet on a sticker. It'll have line after line after line of build codes but your looking for the ones I listed in the very fist post. If you match up to whatever color I've listed then thats what GM calls your color.

Um.... yeah NO! LOL! Its for touching up small areas like the mirror part thats painted or doing trim type stuff like calipers or detailing under the hood.

For what your describing you need a body shop.

Since I'm just going to go ahead and say in all honesty I'm too lazy to go outside and check my code, I'm just going to pick the most likely of the silver's and hope for the best ;p What the hell it's only for the bowtie/details right?

I got some free olympic white touch up paint from my dealership when I brought it in to have the broken wheel stud replaced and they somehow managed to put a gash in my drivers side door. The touch up paint was a nice gesture, but I still wish they hadn't been so careless with my car. Owell, guess thats why they say "if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself".
