    I don't know if any fan knows this but was is the actuall name of the color used on the DOTM movie car. The GM special edition car is only GM code rally yellow not that deep metalic amber color. Does any fan know what company did the movie car or know what actuall paint it is? I am using the color on a 1968 Camaro I am restoring.

    It is a Sunrise Yellow out of the sun but in the sun it is a metalic orange, but primarily is a Sunrise Yellow.

    Do you know anything about cars? "Yellow" can be a wide range.
    Shades of yellow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's like someone asking what exact model G1 Optimus Prime's alternate mode is, and you say "He's a truck, all you need to know".

    Or like someone asking what kind of shark Jaws is, and you're like "he's a shark, all you need to know". But anyway, like Jetformers was saying, he is a metallic orange in some conditions, but is mainly a deep shade of yellow.

    ^ Very pretty color, and car. Off topic, who thinks Bumblebee should be upgraded to the new ZL1 Camaro? Or did he transform into that in rotf?

    I believe (and I'm not kidding or anything) that if you buy a Camaro you can get it as a special order called "bee yellow."

    I'd ask a Chevrolet dealer. See if they know anything.

    That's actually not the same color yellow. All Chevy vehicles use the "Rally Yellow" color, but the color used in the actual movie was a professional paint job, not stock colors, so the only way you're getting that is to drop mad cash.

    He wants to get the color right not just some basic information.

    The GM paint code for Rally Yellow is WA9414 and pretty much covers all variations of the name. The production Camaro and special edition Camaros also use this formula and is one of only three yellows offered by GM (The other two being older formulas).

    If you're looking for movie 1 Bumblebees color. That is not a GM color as it is a Tri-stage candy. Very few companies have a tri-stage yellow in their color offerings.

    The actual color used on the custom-painted cars in the movie, is by Valspar/House of Kolor---they make lots of hot rod paint etc. It is color code PBC30, named "Sunrise". It requires a WHITE basecoat for starters, so if you want BB, buy a white Camaro, not a yellow one.

    Google "PBC30" and you should have all the evidence/pics you'll need.

    And you cannot in any way get GM/Chevy to paint a Camaro for you in this color. You'll have to have someone do it for you as a custom job. I know at least one person has had it done. IIRC, you need to start with the white, then like 3-4 coats of the yellow (it's transparent, so one coat is not going to do it at all), then a few coats of the pearl, THEN the clearcoat.

    You'll get this:

    Yes, he bought a yellow Camaro, and the first thing they had to do was completely repaint it bright white.

    Sorry to revive a dead thread,

    I know the guy who worked on TF1 and 2 as the detailer/transporter/later a stunt driver. He is my detailer now. Anyway, he tells me stories of when Bee was wrecked and he had to rebuild the ROTF Camaro bumper. He said Bay came over and said, "Bee's bumper has a chip. FIX IT!!" And stormed off. He said it was the hardest thing he had ever done because they would not give him a color code, a color name, or anything. He was just supposed to know, or be fired. He took Bee to a fried's shop and told him the story, he had one hour to fix it, and only by the grace of God did he match it on the first paint mix. He had planned on blowing through 10k of paint supply in an hour.

    Moral of the story, even the guy who painted the car wasn't allowed to know the color code. Is PBC30 the color code? Who knows, really.
