    Hello all new to the site but not to Subaru

    Just Introducing myself, and In need of some help with a color I have a 93 Impreza L I have a new WRX V1 bumper on it I also have a V1 Hood but I need some help finding the color of the hood specifically the color code It is a Metallic color and it is a very light blue almost a gray, I want to paint my entire STTI in this color but I can not find the code. At 1 angle it appears gray then at another angle it appears to be a very light blue.

    Here is a picture of my car. any help is greatly appreciated


    this is the best picture of the car that I have but it is not showing the blueish color.

    "STTI" Is for Subaru Twin Turbo Impreza.
    Since My EJ20R says 2 stage twin turbo, does that mean I am already at stage 2?

    Welcome to ClubWRX!

    I think the hood is either Blade Silver 262, or Light Silver 406.

    Unfortunately the names of the colors change over time, so it's hard to tell.
    Any good repair shop should be able to find it in the database, or color match it.

    base metal with clear-coat wouldn't look bad but laws here in GA restrict mirror style paint jobs.

    I did have it color matched, It did not match any color that they had, but they said they could mix it for 800 bucks a pint. That was a PPG shop though, it was the only one in my area that had the paint camera.
