I'm trying to find some spray paint that will match the outside of my car, electric blue. I have the paint code, but no stores seem to have any. I think the code is WA-U885K.
Any Ideas?

Have you tried going to your dealership or to any GM building? They usually carry those hard to find colours of you car...after a few years duplicolor and such may make them..also if you find this colour, can you please post where as I have the same colour car and it'd be nice to know if I don't have to go to GM to buy it in the future.

hey, you can also go in any good body shop or part suppliers like napa auto part, they usually care paint and everything you need , they can make the paint and put it in spray can if you want.

Can they really match it? As it appears to me when I look at it closer that it has flakes in it. Now I could just be seeing things and wishing there was flake there (I've done it before), but does anyone else see this (electric blue in colour)...Also, anyone notice that on one side of the car, the wheels say "Saturn" and on the other side they have the saturn logo?....I laughed when I saw this.

Any body shop can make up a spray bomb that will be the same color. You will need to find the factory paint code on the car. Im not sure where it is in the redlines, in my sunfire it is on the bottom side of the spare tire cover.

If it is a metallic flake paint , they should be able to put the same percentage of flake in the paint, but it will still be hard to match as it is metallic and the flake sits differently due to paint conditions (amount of reducer, spray gun, air temperature).
