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

oldsmobile 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 Oldsmobile Paint Code?

How to Find Your Oldsmobile Paint Code

Oldsmobile paint codes can be a bit difficult to locate as the models span over many years. What you need to find is the "Service Parts Identification" sticker: this is where the paint code information is. Most often than not, this sticker can be found inside the glove box, the driver side door jamb or in the rear compartment on the deck lid - the wheel well or the spare tire cover. If you still haven't found your paint code, it may be under the driver seat, on the passenger door rear face, the passenger sun visor or lastly, on the left rear access door and left rear compartment inside the door. As a rule of thumb, you might want to check every place where a GM paint code might be. Also, there is a likelihood that the sticker location is identified for your specific year and model inside your owner's manual. As a general rule, the Oldsmobile paint code will start with the letters "WA" or "U" for upper body color. This happens mostly if your car is two tones, in that case the lower body color will start with an "L". In any case, all the Oldsmobile paint codes are made with a mix of letters and numbers.
