Mines coming up like this. I have the factory window sticker that says Storm Gray Metallic and I searched for the paint code U 7072 and it comes up with Dark Labyrinth Metallic.

Its the code at the bottom...U501Q. Also shows up as WA501Q in searches. Carbon Flash is the name that comes up.

Thanks for your help, that's the color I saw but never heard of it so I wasn't sure.

Re: Paint Codes

Postby Sierraluva » Nov 18 2016, 1:25am

I have a chip on my driver door that I need to fix.

So I don't have the paint code decal in my glove compartment for some reason.
My original window sticker says "Quicksilver". Well there are about 12 dang shades of it. I ordered a paint pen but it was way off. Running the vin was no help either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

All you need is your VIN, and they'll go through the whole build, Option Code by Option Code - I checked: it is identical to the codes listed on the sticker in the glovebox - that has all the codes used to build your truck too. Here's what mine looks like:

The only thing I didn't like: the paint color description was wrong.



Is this a ligit sight??

I'm trying to find the color of the outside door moldings for my truck.
