Im looking to have the front bumper re-sprayed but I cant find the paint code for the lower half of the car, as I understand it the first 3 digits of the VIN are for the primary paint code, but wheres the code for the lower half?

heres a pic:

so far i've got "8L1 - star sapphire Pearl"

Just need the lower colour code now

Any help would be great :)

Hi

The colour/s and trim are on the plate riveted under the bonnet, in my case on the offside wheel arch. The bottom row starts C/TR for colour and trim. Your photo looks like blue over grey. Mine is Toyota Lucerne Silver over grey. I cannot remember the lower grey colour, but, if it is the same as mine then you may be able to interpolate from my code which is (in full) 199LE13A02AA342E. Note the latter part of this code will relate to the interior.

Hope that is of some help.

Hi cheers for the help, so yours is basically LE13? if so that is the same as mine after the primary paint code

only thing is when I search for LE13 in google, nothing crops up, but when I search for two tone 8L1 is says that the lower part of the code could be UCA32 :S very confusing!

I have done what you probably did and came up with the following

You might find something useful in there. Interestingly, the last one seems to suggest there isnt a code for the lower colour. However, when I 1st got my car, my man who does mobile paint jobs, found it immediately.

It might be worth emailing the pics and the C/TR code to your chosen supplier. Please let us know how you get on.

nope the lower part code doesnt appear on my car, it seems to be a toyota/lexus thing where they only like to stamp the primary code onto the car... I've had similar issues with my mr2 secondary paint code :unsure:

Hi yet again. You originally said "so far i've got "8L1 - star sapphire Pearl" but from the chart its dark grey blush metallic. I'm therefore a bit confused (nothing new).

I've identified my cladding code but cannot find it on google. I'm looking for UCA6N - medium grey metallic but alas I cannot find it. Does anyone know how to find paint in this colour online in a rattle can?
