Getting ready to paint my new R front spoiler. Just a couple of questions:<p>1) what is the yellow color code (607??)<br>2) after painting the front bumper, do I have to apply a clear coat too? (I thought the 95's didn't come with clear coats). <p>

Your choice, no clear coats until 98 I think and not on all colors

i would definately put a clear coat on. it takes about 3 coats of clear for the correct UV protection for the paint. so in my opinion i would.

Re: (jrodT5)

i don't think the rest of my car is clear coated. Won't it look a little odd if just the front spoiler is clear coated.<p>Can someone confirm the yellow color code. Thanks.<br>

I don't know the code off hand but re: the clear.<br>I painted (re painted) my spoiler with clear. It it slightly shinier than the rest but since it's below everything and split by the black bumper no one but you may notice it if at all and yes, it will have more protection where it's needed. Forget about the uv, it on the bottom and mostly not subject to direct sun. I would worry more about the hood the trunk and the roof first regarding uv rays
