Find the paint code on a vehicle, which includes paint weights and proportions for the model car you're working on; learn why no two white paints are the same in this free auto-maintenance video.
Now Andy's going to be looking up the paint code for the Mazda, for the Miata. There's a sticker or label on every car that gives you a paint code. So, before we masked up the car Andy looked up the paint code on this one. This step is usually done by an auto body shop like us or if you go to your paint store, you just give them your paint code and they'll mix it up. So, we're looking that up and it will give us by weight how to mix it. We have a mixing bank behind me here that has all of the different colors on it. And we'll go ahead and grab the different component colors. The computer tells us by weight how much to add of each color to get the final color white we're looking for. It's not just grabbing white out of a can. Every single white color is different.
