What tools do I need for a Cadillac touch up paint job?

cadillac Touch Up Paint Tools including Polishing compound, sand paper, clearcoat, basecoat, primer and wax and grease remover wipe

To create the best looking coat for your vehicle, we recommend the following:

PRIMER, COLOR, AND CLEARCOAT - It goes without saying that you need paint to do a touch up paint job. Clearcoat provides a thin protective layer for your paint job while Primer is required for damage that has reached the original base material.

WAX AND GREASE REMOVER CLOTH - The wax and grease remover cloth is used to remove wax, grease, and contaminants before painting.

SANDPAPER - Wet-sanding the affected area removes rust and prepares the surface with a rough finish so the paint can stick better.

POLISHING COMPOUND - The polishing compound smooths everything out with a factory-grade finish.

These tools are all available with our Platinum kit but can be purchased separately on the TouchUpDirect website.

How to find your Cadillac Paint Code?

How to Find Your Cadillac Paint Code

You can easily find your Cadillac paint color code by locating the "Service Parts identification" sticker. As the location of this sticker has the tendency to change from year to year and from model to model, there are a few places you can look. Start you search underneath the trunk lid if you have a Cadillac Deville, Cadillac Seville or a Cadillac Eldorado. If you don't have any luck there, proceed to look in the right-side compartment of your trunk. Another common place for the Cadillac color code is on the spare tire cover or spare tire well, especially if you have a Cadillac Allante, Cimarron, CTS, Deville, DTS, Seville or STS. For the Escalade proprietors, the color code is located in the glove box. Once the location is found, the color code can be identified by its characteristics. It starts with a letter (“U" for upper body or "L" for lower body) and a string of 4 numbers. The Cadillac paint color code can also be preceded by a WA (WA-U8555). Cadillac Paint Code Examples: WA-U8555, 38/WA9633

Cadillac history and information

Cadillac Story

Asserting itself as an all American luxury car brand, it got its name from no other than Antoine Laumet de la Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac, founder of Detroit. As further homage to Sieur Cadillac, his coat of arms was used as an inspiration for the company's logo. Second only to its fellow GM company Buick in being the oldest automobile seller of North America, you can really say that Cadillac represents the ultimate American prestige car. With its precision parts and the careful thought process that allowed Cadillac components to be interchangeable, the company was the first American brand to be rewarded with the Dewar Trophy. From then on, Cadillac had really set the standard of the world. Cadillac entered the 21st century with a new mindset, introducing Art and Science in its line of car to attain the highest level of technology and beauty available to the American market. TouchUpDirect’s Cadillac touch up paint is also aiming toward this goal and offers you the best quality paint available for your car.
