After some research, I found
WA505Q or 89= Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat
WA636R or 17=Silver Ice Metallic (aka Switchblade Silver Metallic)

The title of your thread reminded me of color codes I learned in 1984 and never forgot, resistance color codes.

Thank you, I am glad to have confirmation of what I found. I dropped the car off last night at my body guy'* house, with a trunk full of Sikkens paint and supplies Hopefully it will be back before July 21st which is the next big show in the area here.

Default PAINT CODES and much more info

I realize this is an old thread but I'm a slow reader .NO REALLY - I want to pass along information on a site that will give you paint codes , options, dates and lots more on your vehicle. Go to COMPNINE(dot)COM and under RESEARCH enter your VIN number. All the FOB information will pop up on (almost) any car. Give it a try with your VIN and learn a few things you never knew. Have fun.
