    It might just be me, but i think that the duplicolor "olympic white" for GM vehicles appears to be a purer, whiter white than the Duplicolor superwhite.

    I repainted my grille emblem with olympic white, along with a couple coats of clearcoat, and it is a better match. The duplicolor superwhite was too yellow for my taste.

    Bingo! Yep, you are right... thought the same thing. Not only is it too yellow, it gets yellower in direct sunlight and over time. FWIW, Color Rite makes the best matching paints for small automotive/vehicle applications.
