copper paint
there is alot of smart paint people around here so i hope somebody can help me out. I am looking to get the copper color paint cadillac had on the 2003 cts. does anyone know the actual name of the color, or possibly a paint code, and if anyone knows where i could get a color chip online that would be great

Any paint supplier should have that if it is a factory color.
You got the car info so it should be just a matter of them looking it up for you.
The real question will be paint cost. Most "value" line's don't have a good match for some of the exotic colors and you'll have to go with a quality line to get the exact match.

its not to match im looking at the color for my camaro repaint. i think the color might be too much for the car as the only color thats why id love to find a color chip online. possible two tone idea in my head also

Be advised that colour chips online are not very accurate......all depends on your monitor.

I highly recommend you read the following link "Basics of Basics" Color choice and paint purchase

DO NOT choose your color from a color chip.

thanks for the tips i would never plan on choosing a color just by a chip. the chip online was to photoshop the car to get an idea. im looking at a few different colors and to see a generated photo would help a little.
