    Chevy Paint Colors.....can\'t seem to find any in spray cans.

    I have searched for someone who makes spraycans with chevy hugger orange to redo my interior bed, BUT no one has it. The only chevy colors I find are for engine paings.

    Are these even available or do I need to have it mixed, thereby defeating the spraycan approach. This is just for interior so I don't really want to buy a compressor, gun and other misc to make that happen.

    Do chevy dealerships carry the "classic" colors?

    Engine paint can be used on things other than engines. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah i read a post on another board where someone said that the "chevy orange" engine paint was VERY close to hugger orange. Problem is, when I have the outside painted, I kinda wanted to ensure that it would match.

    I think gm has rights to the colors and is holding on to them. Kinda sucks for blokes like me.

    Any automotive paint store can mix you up a spray can if you have the GM color code. It will normally cost $15 - 20.
