Where can I find my Hummer’s paint code?

The paint code for your Hummer should be located on the service parts identification sticker, which is either on the door jamb, the lower sail panel, or in the glove box. Most labels are on white paper but more modern vehicles have silver labels.
The majority of Hummer paint codes start with WA. Most cars and trucks start with BC/CC U, which refers to basecoat/clearcoat and upper or body color.

What if there’s no paint code on the car’s label?

With an older Hummer, you may need to look up the paint code using the VIN (vehicle identification number). The VIN is a list of 17 letters and numbers punched into metal behind the front windscreen on the driver’s side. 
Your
Hummer’s VIN
can be found in the following manner:
  • The VIN is normally listed on a small plate on the driver's side, usually behind the windscreen and on the B-pillar. The sticker is visible through the windshield. The car ID sticker may be found under the hood of older vehicles.
  • If your sticker is gone or you can't read it, the VIN should be on your car's title and registration.
Once you have the VIN, go online or call a Hummer dealership to search the paint code.

Paint touch-up tips

Before you start slapping on some paint, check out these quick tips for how to do a touchup paint job on your Hummer:
  • Use soap and water to clean the affected area
  • Sand it gently with fine sandpaper if rust is present
  • Apply primer and allow it to cure on any bare metal or plastic that you intend to paint. Then sand it to create a level surface.
  • Paint the section with the proper color. Apply multiple coats, allowing them to dry completely in between. Allow the last layer to dry overnight.
  • Top with a protective clear coat using the same method above.
  • Buff the area with a rubbing solution after three days to make it shine!
If you just have a tiny area of damage (such as small scratches or a single ding) you may be able to save money by purchasing a paint pen or a smaller paint pack rather than a complete can of paint.
