Welcome to the Color Code Database


    What is this site?

This site is a paint color code lookup site with images, lookup tables, lists for paint codes, color examples, and color charts.  There are links to almost all the pages here that contain color examples, crossovers, and any other information on that page for that vehicle manufacturer. 

    How to use the site.

Most smaller companies have everything on 1 page (example the RAL page).

Pages like General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford have MULTIPLE PAGES.  Therefore those pages will usually have a site index like the GM SITE INDEX. Loading times on the GM MAIN , CHRYSLER , and FORD contain a lot of images, and it might take up to 20 seconds to load those pages.  So for most of those they got broke down into sections. The section links will just scroll down to the area where the years are located. There are also related page links at the top of most pages.


To break paint codes down to specific years and models..... and not overwhelm anyone with hard to find information we put this information into accordions.  Click on the button and paint codes for that model come out.
