Default Paint color

I am wondering what the color is of my Bonnie? The paint code is U529F. I searched here and googled it and didn't find anything.

BTW, the only person that I've seen on here with the color is in Tamara'* signature:

It'* the darker one... Not green, though. I'm not sure what color it is. It'* rare. Have only seen a few of them on the road since we bought it years ago. I'm ashamed to say it, but I have no pics of it.

Look on the RPO sticker for a code like 48U, 16U, etc. Those colors are defined in the RPO decoder located in techinfo.

U529F. I was with the autobody repairman when he read it off. It'* on the estimate too. He didn't know the techincal either, that'* why I posted.

I don't see that code in TechInfo.

My paint code is 48U as seen on the sticker. The RPO codes for paint begin with numbers so it will be located after all the codes with a letter in the first position.

Here are the RPO codes that begin with a number:

1SC
1SZ
56E
56I
6KJ
7KJ
76U
8RW
9RW

Does that help?
