    Default dam paint codes

    just purchased some 163 z paint ( silver lightning )

    proceeded to paint my side skirt to finally get it back on the car

    what a shock ...... it doesnt match , the skirt paint is too dark

    phoned a friend in the paint business and it seems that there are approx 22 different shades for silver lightning

    looks like ill have to get it matched at a paint suppliers now

    Hi - sorry to hear the trouble.

    Your paint code is on the plate by drivers door - usually at the bottom LHS.

    I know Vx are fairly cheap for touch up paints (about £5) - not sure about larger quantities.

    Good luck

    Just looked thru the thread and there is only silver lighting, as you said 163z. Are you sure its not a star silver as there are a few different shades depending on year of your model.
