    Default Paint code confusion

    Hoping someone can kindly clear this up for me.

    My Veccie is Silver Lightning. I'm after some rattle cans so that I can colour code my door handles. The paint code on the door plate is Z163. However, I was browsing through the service book last night and noticed that the car details written in the front of the book show the paint code as 4AU.

    Now, my research tells me that there are a number of different shades of Silver Lightning. The only rattle cans I've seen marked as Silver Lightning look nothing like the colour of my car.

    I asked a local motor factors place that mixes up paint to have a look at the codes for me, they couldn't find any reference to Z163 - only a code 163 which came back as 'Silver Ray'.

    So which do I need?

    4au and z163 are both the same colour. Silver lightening. One is the VX code, the other is the Opel code.

    As Big Sig says, they're the same colour.

    Your paint supplier should have one or the other, then he'll have 4 or 5 swatches that are different shades to give an exact match to the paint on your car.
