    408G, 44, WA408G These are the paint codes as found here: http://www.automotivetouchup.com/touch-up-paint/pontiac/2000/firebird/

    I have used their factory matched paint before and it is dead on so I would definitely believe what it says on their site.

    Thank you! Do you think a pint or a quart to paint a hood? Urethan or acrylic clear coat? How much clear coat do you think it would need respray the whole car?

    I would think a pint would work but you may want a quart just in case. For the clear I would definitely do urethane but it it is slightly harder to use but a lot stronger than acrylic. There are special mixing procedures for it as well as ensuring that where you are painting has very good ventilation. Acrylic is also cheaper but not as strong and easier to use. The site I linked to has both and I would advise reading about both. To respray the whole car in clear I would get a gallon.

    I think the difference is just how long it takes to cure and the temperature range at which it does.
