Hello!

I'm currently trying to buy some touch up paint for my new 99 Monte Carlo and for some reason I can't seem to match up the code that's on my sticker to any of the paint color codes for a 99 Monte Carlo that I can find online. When I google U386E by itself I unfortunately do find two seperate questions asked in two different places by the same person, asking why they can't find paint for their Lumina which has the color code U386E. I'm worried I might not have a standard color?

Here's a picture:


Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

Drop the U, that stands for upper body color.
Look for 386E or WA386E. Should be fairly easy to find

I understood about the U, didn't know about the WA so much. The thing that I guess threw me off is that although WA386E is indeed a pewter GM color code, it's not one that's listed on any website that I looked at for a 99 Monte Carlo, instead, WA382E is listed.

But I guess it doesn't matter as I now see WA386E and WA382E are both sold as the same thing.

Thanks for the help!
