I recently bought a White 95. It seems buick had 3 whites that year

White clear coat
Bright White clear coat
and
White Diamond Pri Tri Coat ( I assume this is a metallic which I do not have)

Anyone know which white was offered as an option on the 95?

I was looking to buy paint at this site hoping it would be a better match then the cans sold at Pep Boys etc... www.paintscratch.com. Anyone ever use their products?

The paint code is listed on the "Service Parts Identification" tag, on my '95 it is stuck on the inside of the right rear quarter panel, behind the trunk trim panels. Using the paint code number on that tag is the best way to know you get the correct paint.

When I needed to know which of the numbers on the tag were the paint code, I went to the body shop and asked them to tell me which number was the paint code.
It just so happens that there is a paint supplier across the street from this body shop that will mix any paint you want by paint code in an aerosol can for small paint jobs. Cost less than $20.00 for a can.

OR, you could just give them the number on your tag like the one I have circled in red here and they could give you the proper paint? This is from my ā€™99 but the number for the ā€™95 will also start with a ā€œUā€.

Thanks for the picture, I got tied up raising kids and other unimportant stuff last night.

This will be my first attempt at paint/body work and I would prefer to do at least an acceptable job the first time. I had about a 3x2 inch spot bubble and flake off the trunk lid. It looks like the last owner did a very poor patch of the same problem about 2 inches away. I will fix both at the same time. so the total area will be about 7 inches long and 3-4 inches tall. Any good online tutorials for doing paint touch up?

For two years now I've been taking an adult education (evening session) Auto Body class at our local Voc-Tech high school. I highly recommend this if you can find something like it in your area. There's nothing like having a body shop to work in with an experienced instructor helping out with the basics.

not finding one here, the adult education for autos only goes into basic maintenance. Almost all of the DIY classes are computer classes these days.
