Bright White Paint!

Anyone know the paint codes (any make or model car) for a really bright white color? Eventually I'm gonna get my whole car painted a brighter white, but for now I'm just gonna do the engine bay while everything is out. I was thinking that white from the MKIV Supra, but I dunno the paint code. Anyone care to help me out with that one or others?

A really nice white is available from nissan from the 300ZXTT. It's not a bright white like the Type R but a very nice color for a factory car...it has a TON of pearl in the paint and has a terrific luster. If I remember correctly, the 88 AE monochrome white is a very white white, and very bright...jeez, that sounds like a Dr. Suess poem

No Championship White on the ITR and NSX are the same, but championship white only came out on the NSX-R I believe. I think the US Spec NSX's had Grand Prix white and one other shade of white, too lazy to check right now

just need the paint code

I like the white on the 3rd gens as it's got some depth to it. Ultra bright white looks good in the pictures, but lacks any depth.

The brightest white that I have seen would be that on one of the current Porsches. It's a gleaming white. I don't know the paint code though.

Chaste white means pure white so maybe that helps It is real basic, bright white

I really like Alpine white, a BMW color, but it has a cream tone to it. I like the cream tone actually


Also, try contacting or calling a bodyshop. They should have a huge book full of colors and stuff. They should def. be able to help you out with a specific tone of color

Go to the nearest parts store. Next to the rack where they sell touch up paints is a cross reference book.

Has the factory codes for about anything you want.

fellas....if u want jsut WHITE. then pick ur particular brand, i.e. ppg, dupont, etc. and just order WHITE . All other whites, as in car colors are like 99% white, with a touch of other colors added. Mainly slight blues, reds, or yellows to give it a different tint. That is why it isnt as "white" as u would like. So i hope that helps. I wouldnt worry bout picking a particular white from a car, but jsut gettin plain ole white basecoat itself.

thanks, ut
