: Help with RPO code

05-23-10, 09:53 AM
I have a 92 Coupe Deville in Lt Beige Met., Paint Code U9805. I need to replace the 1/2 vinyl top that is so badly discolored I cannot tell what the original color was!! I have the SPID label and checked every code on it but I cannot find the vinyl top color. I'm thinking it might not be on that list that is posted (nice list by the way!).

The bottom line of the SPID label reads:

BSE/CLR COAT MA-L9805 U9805 A9646 66T 524

I'm thinking this is where the vinyl top color code might be. I went to an upholserer and from a GM vinyl color chart he has we both think the color might be Gold Mist Metallic and had 2 numbers. The numbers were 46 and
V6237 but I have no idea if they are GM numbers.

Can anybody help me out with this?

Thanks in advance

Does the VIN match the PDI label? This doesn't make sense as 66T is DK Auburn. Ok you say it is a 92, so there was White 40T, Silver 13T, Black 41T, Sapphire Blue 22T, Garnet REd 72T, Dark Garnet Red 76T, Black Sapphire Firemist 28T, DK Green Gray 18T, Med Sapphire Blue 83T, Lt Med Beige 57T, Med Taupe 63T, Gunmetal 87T, Dk Plum 88T, and the DK Auburn 66T. My parts book shows 23 different colors, some were only 1991, some were 91-92, some were 91-93 etc. :hmm: Here is something else I also found interesting. Looking in the other parts book, group 15.490, They listed ROOF COVER-ROOF MATERIAL, Top Covering. But the years covered were only from 85-88. My books cover all "C" body from 85-93. In the group for the 89-93 they only show a part number for the piece of vinyl stiched and I guess ready to be streched over the pad or whatever. Boy would I like to find one of those.
