Default Help with Green for 95

K.. so Tamara'* car has some rust spots that I"d like to work on tomorrow ( since I have it off ).. but she doesn't have the spare wheel cover, so I can't find the RPO code to see which green it is.. it'* a 95 SE and lookin thru the RPO code list.. there'* only 3 kinds of green

91U - exterior color,primary,dark polo green metallic
48U - Primary color exterior,dark yellow green metallic(92)
42U - Primary color exterior, med sea green metallic(96)

Since the last 2 green seem to be specific to 92 or 96.. is it safe to say dark polo green metallic is the one to use?

I'm askin to confirm somehow cause some counter guy gave me the wrong white for my car and I had to redo my touch up again ( the book on shelf only list years and GMC not by model ) and I really don't feel like having to redo it again on Tamara'* car also

Anyone with 95 FSM or want to take a look on there spare wheel cover to confirm the RPO code for green exterior?

FYI the 92 and 96 dont mean that they are specific to the year

I called the shop at my local GM/Pontiac dealer and they gave me the code, name and number of my paint y giving them the VIN. I'm sure yours can do the same. Good luck fidning a color match at a store though, I know I couldn't. I ordered two 5 oz. aerosol cans from Gmpartsdirect.com. I know someone here can give you the P]n for your color once you find it out too.

*cough* I might call them if I know there *cough cough* number.. and maybe see how far out of the way it is.. maybe I might hold off on doing it tomorrow.. maybe... the white I got isn't that far off from the original.. but I guess after seeing it with way off white.. anything closer or close to original looks good..
