I bought a Trailblazer SS in november. Its an 09 with a metallic black finish. The paint code in the glove compartment shows that its a silver paint code. So.... Im not sure if this vehicle has been repainted with the carbon flash metallic/black granite paint code that was offered in 09 or if its completely different color all together. It has an almost midnight blue metallic look to it. Does anyone have a a factory 09 carbon flash metallic TB that I can see pics of to try to match this paint so I can respray my front bumper cover? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No need really. Silver and black granite aren't even remotely close in color. The VIN code would tell us what it should be. Paint code should be posted in the glove box as well.

I agree but pics wouldn't hurt. I think 2008 was the only year they had the granite black metallic if I'm not mistaken. Is that correct? If so, then his truck would definitely have a different paint job.

I apologize but I don't know how to upload pictures off of this iPhoto stuff, I'm so computer illiterate.

Negative. There are 09' models with granite black.

Just look behind some of your interior trim peices, and see if it's silver, I doubt they stripped the entire interior out to repaint it. I'd try the A pillar or tailgate cover, easy any quick to check. Odds are it's a factory granite but got a silver paint code sticker by mistake, probably at the change of paint colors during assembly

Yes i pulled the rear interior trim piece off and it is silver, but I don't know if previous owner had it painted or if the factory did it mid build. I wouldn't think someone would have that new of a vehicle stripped and painted either, and if they did i would like to know if this is carbon flash metallic or black granite that was offered in 09

09 Black granite code 58U

Try to find an auto body supply or body shop with a color spectrometer. They should be able to scan the color and give you the top 3 closest to's. The shop I work at had 1 so I could scan the color changed cars so I had a base point to mix from then tint as needed

Thats what I was afraid of. I was hoping that it was carbon flash metallic and not something else i'll have to try to match.
