Default can you please decode my paint code?

Hello

I have 1996 Bonneville SE I am not sure how to read the sticker



Can you please tell me what is the color code? The car is light sand - almost silver color. I am not sure how to describe it.

Color code is the U 116B you see at the bottom row. Occasionallly, you may see it coded as WA 116B for some aftermarket touch-up paints. Same thing. The key to the code is the 116B.

Stone Beige Metallic Clearcoat

Try the dealer. Take the code. Spray cans or touch-up bottles.

Click on 'Techinfo' at the top of the page, then 'Exterior'. You'll see a paint code article.
