Okay here'* the deal on ready paint codes:
" U272C" is the paint code.
The first letter "U" stands for "Upper" body colour. Now if your car/truck had two-tone paint it would read as: Uxxx/Lxxx.
The last 3 digits is the actual paint code. GM mixes up letters in there to give more available paint codes for the future. The rest of the 3 digit codes on that label are the vehicle options the car was built with. "L" codes are usually denotes engine type, while "M" codes denotes Transmission types. Now with that all said....If you phone your local GM dealer with this code, he'll give you the GM P/N for the touch up paint & the name of the GM coloue it'* called too.
