Locating your Hyundai color code is straightforward, to find your Hyundai paint codes, you may have to look at a few locations on the car:

Hyundai Paint Code Location

  2. Check on the door pillar and the door edge
  3. The code can be found in these places on all but a few models
  4. For these models, it is located on the firewall
  5. Look for the sticker that also contains your VIN
  6. Hyundai paint codes are typically 2-3 digits long
  7. They include both numbers and letters
  8. It will be next to the word: Paint

You will be able to locate the color code inside the driver’s door jamb on most models of Hyundai. However, on the Excel and Scoupe, it will be found on the firewall in the center.

The Hyundai color code will be located on a silver or black sticker. It will have either two or three digits, and later models tend to have a three-digit code. The code can be made of numbers and letters.

You should aim for temperatures that are a minimum of 70 degrees F when painting.

  1. Your first step should be to clean the damaged area gently. It is essential to use wax and grease remover on the area you are going to work on.
  2. Apply masking tape to the area around the damaged area to protect the surrounding paint
  3. Next is the application of the primer. It should be applied in multiple thin layers. You must let the layers dry for a minimum of five minutes between applications. Then let everything dry overnight.

Which is best a Hyundai touch up paint pen, Hyundai spray paint or a different product?

Every scratch is different, and the equipment you need will reflect this. Generally, there are two different things you can use to perform touch ups:

  • Hyundai Spray Paint – This is ideal for large damaged areas. You may need several cans depending upon the size of your project.
  • Hyundai Touch Up Paint Pens – These can be challenging to control
  • Hyundai Paint Jars and Dabbers. This is the best option for chip repair and scratches.

In the pursuit of providing industry-leading products for our customers, we do not sell Hyundai touch up paint pens at ERA Paints. We believe that they can’t offer the flawless factory finish that we aim to give our customers. In particular, touch up paint pens do not handle the demands of metallic paint well, and it tends to flake. This doesn’t provide a great finish.

Hyundai spray paint is a far better option. It is excellent for large areas of damage and means that you can even fix your Hyundai Sonata with Sparkling Silver Metallic paint, without the worry of a poor finish. For large jobs, you will need multiple spray cans. It is essential to provide our clients with great value, and that is why we opt to sell 12-ounce canisters rather than 10-ounce, it allows you to complete the work without spending too much.

For smaller scratches and chips, jars with dabbers on the end are the best choice. ERA Paints 1/4 ounce touch up jars are perfect to repair the small dings from rocks and our dabbers provide control and flexibility in paint application.

What will I need to fix my Hyundai DIY style?

Doing the work yourself has an array of advantages. It is far cheaper than using a body shop and is also rewarding to fix it yourself. The Hyundai touch up paint process is straightforward. But you have to get the right tools to get a great finish.

We recommend you buy:

  • Primer – is vital to completing the first part of the touch up paint process
  • Choose a spray or a jar – to administer for your OEM touch up paint
  • ClearCoat – this is used in the last part of the process
  • Wax and grease cleaner – to prepare the area for painting
  • Sandpaper – 320 and 600 grit to smooth the area
  • Masking tape – this stops paint affecting the non-damaged areas
  • A lint free shop towel – to help with project preparation
  • Nitrile Gloves – They help protect your hands throughout

We have kits where you can purchase all of the items above in a bundle. You can buy them separately, but it works out to be more expensive.

Think before you buy. What is the easiest Hyundai color to maintain?

Regardless of how much you spend on buying a vehicle, it is important to try and keep maintenance costs low over the vehicle’s lifetime. One of the easiest ways to avoid paint maintenance is to think about purchasing a car with a color that is more resistant to scratches and scrapes. Some colors show off damage more than others, and this can damage the pride you have in your car.

We have outlined some things to consider when deciding on the color of your vehicle.

  • Across the board, the car, which requires the least maintenance in terms of the paintwork is white, silver, and gray.
  • If you want to hide general dust or minor scratches, white can be ideal. But more intensive stains can show up like a sore thumb.
  • Light colors, in general, tend to require less paint maintenance across their lifetime.
  • Metallic paint can be quite labor-intensive and isn’t the best choice alongside black and red.
  • Pearl and Metallic based paints are among the worst offenders in terms of highlighting scratches
  • Dark colors such as black tend to highlight scratches prominently

As well as avoiding the touch up paint process altogether, choosing the correct car color means that you can avoid having to rigorously maintain the appearance of your vehicle.

Choosing a car color is low maintenance means that it won’t require a wash every other day. Overall, they are more friendly on the back pocket and will save you a lot of time.

Is Clear Coat needed? How is it different from a two-step paint system?

Before the 1980s, paint was applied to cars in a single step process. The various compounds were combined and applied to the body of the vehicle at the same time. Overall, it was a flawed but straightforward process.

Hyundai Paint Protection
  1. Single-stage paint jobs did not have exceptional longevity and tended to fade significantly because of the sun. The consequence is that it costs the owner more.
  2. Single-stage paint jobs tend to lack the shine of their two-stage counterparts.
  3. Cars with single-stage paint jobs tended to absorb more heat and be less reflective.

Following the single-step process was the two-step paint system that is now the primary method for painting cars. It involves applying the paint, which is then covered with a clear coat. Despite being a more complicated and pricier process, it has some key advantages.

  1. The two-step process is robust and will last a very long time.
  2. Two-step paint jobs stand up very well against the elements, including the sun and snow.
  3. The paint is more scratch-resistant because a layer of clear coat protects it.
  4. Cheaper over the lifetime of the car because less maintenance is required.
