In the trunk, lift up the carpet on the floor board and it's on the drivers side.

Thank you.
I found it. You list ABM as: Aqua Blue Metallic Clearcoat 61/WA638R. The code on my lable says: BC/CC U638R. I understand the BC/CC but what is the difference of the WA vs. U. I was also wondering what does the R mean.

Hi I am new to the forums and I need help with an issue I cannot seem to find it. I need the color code for Wheels 20" x 8" Front and 20" x 9" Rear Polished Aluminum. I scuffed them on the curb and would like to touch them up with paint. Does anyone know the color code for the wheels? If you could let me know that will be very helpful! Thanks in advance!

How would I go about fixing it? Spray it with silver then apply a clear coat? Also, what would the codes be?

I would think not unless they sell automotive paint. i.e. DuPont, PPG, House of Kolor, Sherwin Williams (automotive type) etc...

So where could I go to pick up some for a reasonable price? I want to color match some of my interior pieces myself. And about how much would I need to do my door panel insert, gauges cluster, center console, other trim, etc?

Preferably in spray can...

I have a local automotive paint supply shop, try looking for one of those, or contact PPG or DuPont and ask where the local distributor is, or check their website.

You can also purchase paint from these web sites.
http://www.paintscratch.com/
http://www.automotivetouchup.com/

As far as how much you will need? I do not know the answer to that question. If you get it from those web site or even from a local shop they could/should be able to tell you how much a can should typically cover.

If your wheels are the polished aluminum, that is just a clearcoat over the "polished" aluminum. If you got the wheels that come stock with the RS package that is Midnight Silver. Bavarian is the stock V6 wheels color I believe.

I have a 2011 camaro 1ss. The 20" rims are not midnight metallic. They are a lighter silver. Do you think they may be the Bavarian Silver Metallic Clearcoat?
