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

gmc 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 GMC Paint Code?

How to find your GMC Paint Code?

GMC paint codes have moved around a little over the years. You have to keep an eye out for the "Service Parts Identification" sticker, sometimes a white paper tag or on more recent models, a silver sticker. Start by looking in the glove box as it is the most obvious location. Otherwise it will most likely be on the driver side door jamb. It can also be found under the left side of the driver seat or on the rear side pillar of the passenger door. As a last resort, take a look at the passenger sun visor, the side wall of the cab or behind the passenger seat. The GMC paint code is composed of a string of letters and numbers that you can see after the "BC/CC" indication. In case you have a two-toned model, the paint code for the upper body will be after the "U" and the lower body color or bumper color will be after the "L". GMC Paint Code Examples: 75/WA8980, GWY/WA106V, WA9967
