Thread: Paint question,

  1. #1

    Default Paint question,

    Its been a while since I was in the paint and body trade, but I remember that the waterbased paints started around the time I was working. My question is if my 94 Silverado has the waterbased stuff or is the old school solvent. Or how would I find a code explaination.
    Thanks for the help.

    Don't know if this is true for older models, but in my 2011 there is a sticker inside the glove box with misc. vehicle piece of that info is the paint code...think it starts with a U or WA(?) and some numbers after it. Again just taking a stab but that's all I got.

    Thanks Sam, I did a check n the glove box and found a WA-U9794. I did a search with Yahoo and found a site that lets you look at paint chips with OEM color and cross refrence to PPG and other paints. I am more worried about starting to prep for paint and find a waterbased system.
    I am hoping to get the hood prepped and a coat of flat black till tax time.
