2005 Chevrolet Impala


PostPosted: Thu Jun 07, 2012 2:53 pm    Post subject:  Weird Color Code Reply with quote

For my 2005 Impala, I'm trying to get some touch-up paint to repair a few small scratches.

I looked on the RPO sticker and here is the Paint Code line, exactly as it appears, with correct spacing between characters:

BC/CC       U 910 L                        92B

No "WA" number anywhere.

I can't match "910" to anything. "910L" matches up to "Light Tarnished Silver Metallic" on the http://www.automotivetouchup.com web site, but that's for 2004 Buick. Plus they show TWO different codes named "Light Tarnished Silver Metalic," (910L and 944L), and the color chips are obviously different. But that can't be right, since the "L" stands for "lower color" if it's a two-tone, right?

Can anyone help me make a solid match to a "real" paint code?

If you want, PM me your VIN. I double check it for you.

For future reference, ZSPOT came up with this correct color code:

67U, WA 994L, Light Tarnish Silver

Funny thing now is, Dupli-Color has a match, but their code listings only show this color for Saturn and Isuzu.

Go figure.... Rolling Eyes

I brought my VIN # to my local chevy dealership to get my touchup paint. Took about a week for it to come in, but at least I know it'll be genuine GM color matched paint
