Question about 1984 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Body Paint Code

I can't find the location of the metal tag that tells me what the body paint color is on my 1984 Buick Regal ... The WA_ ? number is not listed on the Service Parts Identification label (located truck lid). I have been told the 'U' number represents the body color. Where can I find translation of the code to color name ... 78L = Dark Maple Metallic which is not the correct color.
I'm looking for a more maroon metallic paint color match?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated ... Thanks

What was the paint code on the 1989 fleetwood brougham the paint name being Academy gray ?


If you look in the glove box there may be a label with all the
options & paint code. I just checked my old 1984 GM Vehicle
& that was the case. A Dealer should be able to run your Vin #
& I know any auto body supply has many books with paint codes
going back 70 years,You have the color, so an auto body supply
or the internet search should get you the code

Looking for paint color code


Subaru paint codes are located on either strut tower or in the door edge or jamb. Most paint color codes are three digits long and may contain both letters and numbers. For two tone cars: The paint code for a two tone car provides the data for both the upper body paint color and the lower bumper color. The trim code is never the bumper color. For a list of touch up paint colors for your Subaru go here: http://www.automotivetouchup.com/choosecolor/year.aspx?make=Subaru.

What is the gm name for the maroon paint color of the 1984 el camino


The paint code is on the trim tag attached to the driver's side firewall. A trim tag, lists original interior trim, exterior color, build date and other fisher body info. The paint code is a two digit code on the right side second row. If you have two codes, the car was a two tone car. If you go to http://www.paintscratch.com/ you can enter the year make and model of the car and see all the avilable colors that are original for that vehicle.

The paint code for all Chevy cars and trucks are located on the service parts identification sticker. While the sticker is moved around from year to year, it still looks like the ones below. Most labels are white paper sticker, while more moderns ones are a silver label. While most paint codes in our database start out with a "WA", most cars and trucks will start out with a "BC/CC U". BC/CC stands for basecoat/clearcoat, and the U stands for upper or body color.


Two Tone Models: A two toned car will have a "U" followed by the four digit color code for the body color, and an "L" followed by a four digit color code for the lower color or the bumper color.

I believe it should be 78U. Which is maroon metallic.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Toyota paint codes are can usually be found either under the hood or on the passenger/drivers side door jamb. Most Toyota paint codes are 3 digits long.
If you can't find your color code on the car your local Toyota dealership (parts department) will be able to tell you your code from your registration or chasis number...
