Help

Anyone know what paint would go with the wheels on my 2012 1LT? I'm not sure what color they are, but they are the painted aluminum.

Interior Codes Confusion

Can we clarify a bit on the following interior codes? What part do they refer to?


Ebony (Interior) WA167A
Medium Titanium (Interior) WA312N
Black (Interior) WA848
Light Neutral (Interior) WA9772

Ebony: door panels for grey interior (seats)?
Medium titanium: for the gauge cluster? (so it is the same for all interior colors?)
Black: for jet black interior, like the transformer edition?
Light neutral: the standard color for the door panels etc.for normal black interior? So the silver door panels I would say...

Is there any color for the plastic dashboard for the 2010 model year? or that it is just plastic and there are no references?

Thnka you

Actually, it is a Brilliant Red/Medium Charcoal Stripe Package, and I can't find paint #'s because they are not paint.

The best thing to do. Go to a body shop and have them mix a color that is close them they can tint it as needed to get a really close match. That is if you go to a shop that is worth their salt.

At first my body shop did not have the code for ABM in is system but he matched it perfectly.

They took a picture of the stripe and will computer match it.

Sterling Silver (matt) WA569F - I speculate this is used behind the door panels. . Since it is sprayed behind a shinny plastic it comes out looking the way it does. Need some one to pull off a door panel and look at the other side to be 100% sure.
Thanks for pointing me to this thread Lupe. I searched for "paint codes" instead of "color codes".

You and Ofer have to be the two most helpful people here.

In case anyone wants to color match the red stripe on the 45th anniversary. I did some searching and someone mentioned the color was "hot red" so I took a stab and found a GM color of "hot red" that was used on Pontiacs. I ordered the spray paint from automotivetouchup.com with code WA687F. I sprayed my engine cover and held it up to the stripe on my car and it was a perfect match (especially after I clearcoated it).

Perhaps a dumb question but I want to color match the unpainted GM GFX. Any idea what that color code may be? TIA.

Dark Argent Gray, huh? Well I would have never figured that out. Gray yes. Dark grey yes. Never the Argent part. Thx. My wife wants to ge the Hex vents in that color to match her GFX. Her car is SIM and I told her she should get the GFX painted to match but she likes the offset. Its a discussion we have about once every couple of months. Thx again

Anyone know what color that is used on the rear spoiler of a 2013 1LE? It's almost a satin black. I'm thinking it is a single stage paint. Any help is appreciated.
