How to find your Aston Martin paint code
The paint code will be in different places, depending on whether you drive a 2019 Aston Martin Vantage or an Aston Martin Lagonda. The best places to check for it are:
- Under the hood of the car in the central section
- On the driver’s side doorjamb
The paint code will be made up of numbers and letters and is usually four or five characters long.
The code above represents Marine Blue Pearl, which is a popular color for the Aston Martin Rapide.
The code is likely to be on a silver, black, or white manufacturer tag. But if you can’t find it, you have a few options:

How to apply Aston Martin touch up paint
It’s crucial with cars as exclusive as Aston Martins to do the job right and get a flawless factory finish to remove any blemishes. The key to a great finish is the preparation and application of the paint.
Never paint in direct sunlight as it makes the paint dry unevenly and never paint on a day that is below 50°F as the paint won’t dry. To complete the Aston Martin touch up paint process:
- Clear the scratch or scrape to remove any excess from the area.
- Sand the area with 200 grit and 600 grit sandpaper.
- Clean the scrape again, but this time use a grease remover.
- Use a non-fibrous shop towel to dry the area.
- Mark out the outside of the area with automotive masking tape to prevent paint overreach.
- Apply the primer in three thin coats. Always wait between five and ten minutes between each layer to allow for drying.
- Use our Aston Martin OEM touch up paint. Layer it on until it matches the area around it.
- Protect your work with three layers of clear coat. Make sure the first layer is thin. Then add two more.
The above steps don’t go into the full process, but make sure to take a look at our YouTube page for step-by-step information.
What paint product should you use?
Quality is the essential aspect of dealing with luxury brand cars like the Aston Martin Vanquish or any Aston Martin for that matter. For that reason we only recommend two products:
If your Aston Martin has a small scrape, then the paint bottles are ideal. The applicators they come with allow you to add the paint to small areas delicately.
For anything larger than a quarter, we recommend the spray cans. They are exceptionally versatile and offer great coverage. We recommend purchasing the spray trigger that goes with the cans as it makes the process easier.
Many of our customers inquire about Aston Martin paint pens, but we don’t stock these and certainly don’t recommend them. The finished work will usually flake or peel, with pearl and metallic colors performing particularly poorly.
What supplies are a must for your Aston Martin touch up paint repair work?
When completing the paint repair work at home, you should always strive to use paint that offers a perfect manufacturer’s match. Using exceptional paint and the right tools means you achieve a flawless factory finish on your 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish. The supplies you need are:
- Sandpaper to smooth out the scratch. We recommend 320 grit and 600 grit sandpaper.
- Wax and grease cleaner to use after sanding.
- To protect the rest of your vehicle’s paint, you will need masking tape.
- The primer prepares the body of the vehicle for the Aston Martin touch up paint.
- Aston Martin OEM touch up paint that has been perfectly matched.
- Clear coat helps protect the touch up paint long term and seals off the previous two layers.
- We recommend gloves to keep your hands clean during the painting.
- Shop towels are great for drying your Aston Martin and wiping away any excess touch up paint.
You can buy all the items above separately, or alternatively, we sell Aston Martin touch up paint kits that contain everything that you need.
