Default Paint Codes for white 92-93

What are the paint codes for white in 92 and 93? I know there are 3 choices on color (since my car wears two of them) but I was wondering if there was different paint codes per year for the same color.

That sounds good to me too.

ACG_SSEi and I researched grilles from 92-99 and that is the only two white paint codes I ran into while we were doing it. My 90 also has 40U as a paint code so it'* been around for a while.

Thanks. I was just checking the paint code for the one in the for sale section, and unfortunately, it is not the same as my car.

I think that the 40U is more on the Beige side of white, I believe that the 16U is the purest white that GM produced

I don't know. My white is pretty white. That is... where the clear coat hasn't peeled.

I don't think I could even give a verbal description of the difference.

Yea, the difference can be seen in my sig pic. Pass fender is 40U and the rest of the car is 16U. I was just wondering cause someone said there was a third white.
