View Full Version : Need a little assistance

Hey GAGT, was hoping someone could answer a quick question. I just bought a 2000 GT, and am wanting to replace my hood with a SC/T hood. I found a guy locally that has one and is willing to trade. He has a 2003 in Victory red. Looking up the paint codes for my car, I get "Bright" red. They look very close on the computer screen, but just wondering if they are the same color once on the car? Did GM just switch the name of the color, or are they not going to match up without a paint job?

Thanks for any help, and I hope this isn't a repost. I snooped around here and Google for the last 2 hours.

Victory red appears to be a deeper red while the "bright red" is in fact more brighter.

Ah, thanks for that page. That is what I've been looking for.

No problem. GM likes to change their color options mid production sometimes. Thats why I have a hard time finding parts in Silvermist for my car... They were only produced in 99-00 which really sucks.
