You're gonna need Jr's3800. There'* a list of RPO codes on the spare tire cover in the trunk. You'll need that. Write them down in the proper order, just as they appear, or take a digital pic of the label. Then wait for Jr to tell you which number you're looking for. If Jr doesn't get here in time, Deathrat will jump on it for you.

Hey fellas I have the sound set up from Hell in My trunk. Can I give my vin # to find out the proper color or can the rpo codes be found somewhere else like on the inside of the drivers side door?

I don't think so. You need those codes. They'll tell you everything about your car. Remember, lift with the knees, not the back!

The paint code is at the bottom of all those 3 digits codes. It will start with a "WA" or "U" then a number! The label is on underside of the spare tire cover. The VIN will only give you a rough guess of the colour & not what "Shade" it is!
