Paint Colours and Rear Wheel Cover

PostPosted by Markie » Wed Apr 05, 2017 6:42 am

Hi

I have a 2002 RAV4 nrg 3 Door. It is the metallic turquiose and grey bottom section combination which you see quite often. I cant find the paint code on the car in any of the places it is supposed to be - can anyone help me with the names of the colours or the codes as i have some minor re-spraying to do.

I also need a replacement spare wheel cover and am struggling to find a second hand one can anyone help ?

Many thanks,Mark

Have a look on page 24 of the attached. Caldera Red???

I may be teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, so apologies, but just take care using the paint "name". Different Toyota markets can use the same name for slightly different shades and therefore the paint codes.

...and remember even factory paint varies, so a generic touch up "code" may not always match exactly. The code can come in a number of different shades for professional repairs.

I don't have a code for "Caldera Red", if that's what it is.

Have a look at this post: topic261.html
It has a Dupont Refinisher (Repairer) PDF Document attached, which will help you find the code sticker on the vehicle. And once you have that code, you can find the paint name (but the code is more important anyway as that is standard, the colour name for a given paint code varies between regions, models and dates, even though the paint colour itself does not)

Also bear in mind that even if the paint you source is 100% perfect shade made, if you get a spare wheel cover and spray that to match with the same paint, it may look different as Plastic and Metal often have different paint appearances with the exact same paint applied.
