Default factory colours?

hello yet again, does anyone know of the exact names for the 91 bonneville factory colours? i want to get it painted where the paint has come off when they guy before me took a powerwasher to it. it looks really ghetto right now and i don;t want to get the wrong paint and look like a jackass. or if anyone knows what the blue is called, other than blue, and the paint code, if applicable.

thanks in advanced

Justin.

Most of the more "modern" bodyshops can computer match your paint color, so it isnt really an issue unless your doing it yourself.

If they match it from the car.. like the paint that is on it, that can be a problem, because my car, isn't white, it'* antique white.. because of age. But, if you went from RPO codes, then it would be more accurate..

Actually a shop computer matching it will be more acurate in your case since you said in your post

So you WANT to match it to the faded or not so new color on your car, that way if you only paint say the hood it will still match the fenders.

If you were painting the whole car then for sure get the RPO code and go that way.
