One of the hardest things to do when you are trying to get touch-up paint is to get the right color. If you have come this far and are looking for GM carbon flash metallic then you probably have done your research. However, there are some people who may still be iffy about whether or not this is the paint for them. Trying to find your paint code can be a harrowing experience. Not only do you have to find the paint code but you have to write it down perfectly or else you could order the wrong color. Before that happens you have to discover where the paint code is in your car which can be an experience all in of itself.
Paint codes are not only notoriously hard to write down but they can be very hard to find as well. You can search online and many websites tell you where to find the codes but the problem is that only some of them tell you that manufacturers have been known to move the paint code around based on what they need. Just because you found a paint code in a certain area last year does not mean that it is in the same area in another year's edition. It is possible but it might not be there either. It is hard to say until you have to look for it. If you have been in your vehicle for any amount of time then you have probably had a few trips and maybe a few things in the vehicle. You may have damage as well. Any one of these situations can affect you finding the paint code quickly or, at least, having an easy time locating the code.
Once you have located the paint code you have to be sure to write it down perfectly. We do mean perfectly because one transposed number can be the difference between a red paint and a purple paint. The paint you thought you wrote down correctly could be the wrong paint altogether. The GM carbon flash metallic paint may be too light or too dark. If you get the wrong paint then you are wasting money and time. You will have to sand down the paint or repaint your whole vehicle the same color. You will also have to buy a lot of the new paint or you might have to sand down the wrong paint and buy the new paint. It could look bad for the time period you have to wait to get the new paint in the mail or drive to the auto parts store. Either can be embarrassing because people notice that something is off with your vehicle.
Any of these situations could be very bad for you. The best thing to do is to avoid having to use the paint codes at all which may sound counter-intuitive to you right now. It would be better if you could just go through a system and be told what paint you need without having to look up a long number that is hard to find and hard to write down perfectly. The idea of a paint code tends to be flawed when you consider that the area can be damaged, stained, or covered up by things you may need on a daily basis, especially if it is located in the glove compartment. The number is long and it can be difficult to get every number down correctly not to mention the fact that your 3's can look like 8's or so forth. The GM carbon flash metallic paint that you think you need may not be the right paint for you at all.
The answer is here though if you own a GM made vehicle. All you need to know is your vehicle's make, model, and year. If you have those things and your vehicle is 2009 or newer then you can use the paint code system we have devised. The system only asks you for your make, model, and year then it delivers you to the paint you need. It is much simpler than looking up where your paint code is located, trying to find that paint code in that area, and then trying to maneuver yourself so that you can write your paint code down perfectly with no errors. You can see that there is too much room for error in that scenario.
