This is what sucks about having a custom/non-common color. Paint is incredibly hard to find and I can't find the paint code in my glovebox.
The rigs:
2007.5 Silverado 2500HD Duramax SCLB 4x4 (old work truck)
2006 Silverado 2LT Z71 CCSB (daily driver)
1995 K1500 Silverado ECSB 4x4 (sold and regret that)
1993 K1500 Silverado ECSB Z71 (totaled)

I've had really good luck with compnine.com for this kind of stuff. You enter the VIN and it gives you the full list of RPO's that came with your truck, and it explains what they all mean. It's what started me on the mission to change my 4.10 open differential for a 3.42 posi!

Not a complete list, unfortunately. I'm working on a decoder (just a simple vlookup excel worksheet, you enter your RPO code, it spits out the option data), but I have to manually parse 18000 lines into usable data. Will be a while, because I get distracted eas...what was that?

Also, it seems that RPO codes vary somewhat by body (i.e., Camaros have a different list than Silverados, but not all codes are different). Would be nice to have a verified (by GM) list specifically for Silverados and Sierras, so I know my time isn't being wasted :/

Mine appears to be a not-so ordinary color... (2008 Sierra) RPO code 12U called "Dark Brahma Jewel Metallic" or as my wife calls it... Purple with sparkles :lol:

Are the paint codes still shown in two parts like this now? I have a Brownstone Metallic (all one color) 2014 Silverado. I can't find anything on the sticker that ends in an "L" and only R9U that ends correctly. Am I missing something?

Sorry if I missed a change somewhere in this thread. TIA
