Re: Paint code

while that may be the paint code there may be 10 ways to make it... silver is a hard color to match just FYI if its not just a simple touch up deal then you may have to blend the color some. Talk to a shop thats good and knows what they are doing and they can help you.

My paint guy told me where to find it but i have my car at home he doesn't have it. So I was just making sure. He had me look up the code

The shop I'm dealing with is good. He has done a number of mustangs. And it's painting my hood that I needed the color code for. Shouldn't have any probs. I took a pic of it and sent it to him lol

Re: Paint code

make sure if the paint doesnt match he will redo it etc and not just say 'sorry' or something similar. Look in the light as well if its cloudy you may not can tell as easily.

If the color is off, tell him to blend the color into the fenders. Silver is very tricky to match
