2013 Chevrolet Avalanche OEM Touch Up Paint - Why and How to Get it

2013 was the last year of the Chevrolet Avalanche and the Cadillac Escalade EXT unfortunately. You were one of the lucky ones who get one of the last ones off the line and you might be aware of that fact. If you have kept one of these trucks this long then it is highly likely that you love the truck you own and intend to keep it for awhile. The problem with that is that it is a discontinued style of truck and it requires you to search for parts and other things you need when you want and or need them. You might have had to search high and low for the right part or right paint to fix your problems.

If we are talking about paint then you need to know that you need a paint code, in most cases, in order to find the right coat of paint for your truck. It is one of those things that people have struggled with in the past and you might struggle with in the future. Paint codes can be notoriously easy to mess up when reading or writing them down. The difference between getting a white paint and a purple paint can literally be one number at times. If you get purple instead of white and use it on your truck then you will find that you just have increased the cost of the repair because you have to buy new paint in addition to sanding the area to remove the paint. 

Once you have the paint code then you have to make a decision on whether or not you want to use OEM or aftermarket paint to fix the problem. Some people know the difference between the two but some people do not. We will tell you the difference between the two in case you are one of the people who does not know the difference. OEM means original equipment manufacturer means that the company that originally made the part is providing you the new part. The assumption, which is incorrect, is that the vehicle manufacturer produced the part, or paint in this case, which might be true but is most often not the case. The truth, most of the time, in the automobile industry is that you will get the paint or part from the company who did make the part or paint when your truck was produced from the company who the vehicle maker used to supply the part. In short, your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche OEM touch-up paint could come from GM but it is highly likely it is coming from the company that GM used when your truck was produced.

Why not use an aftermarket paint? Aftermarket paints do not have to live up the standards set forth by GM or Chevrolet, therefore, the quality of the paint could vary widely based on the company making the paint. It is really up to the Aftermarket company to police themselves to make sure that you are getting the quality part that you are supposed to be getting. Unfortunately, not all aftermarket parts manufacturers do that for you. It is true that there are good aftermarket parts manufacturers and there are also bad aftermarket parts manufacturers. It might take some trial and error in order to find ones you can trust and you can do that if you so wish to do that in the future.
