INTRODUCTION

Note: This is the most accurate information available at the time of printing.

Various paint manufacturers designate their own stock numbers and coding information although many of the major suppliers are now using the SOA paint codes to help eliminate possible confusion.  Their color formulations are updated on a continual basis.  Some vendors may have different color names than those provided to them by SOA.  Be sure to double-check the codes and formulas beforehand to help insure an accurate color match.  Should discrepancies arise, please refer your Body Shop contact inquiries to the specific paint vendor or their jobber / supplier for the most updated formula information.

The paint coding information can be found on the vehicle’s VIN plate.
