    Paint codes for 85 gmc jimmy\'s

    I need to repaint my JIMMY this winter after I get new pass. and driver doors. My paint job is rather different than most, I have seen a pick-up and suburban with this paint job but I have never seen another jimmy/blazer with this paint job. I have a light grey bottom that comes up about 12 inches then has a chrome trim then goes red for about 13 inches then finally is grey from there all the way up. Where the red and grey meet there are three orange pin stripes. Has anyone else seen this or have this? Or does anyone have a copy of the paint codes they could send me? For pictures e-mail me. (e-mail address in my info)

    1985 k-5 gmc jimmy 4x4 sierra classic. 1970 cuda 440 6 pack executive edition steering column shift.

    that sounds alot like my blazer with the pinstripes( and i know it was the factory color) the only differance is mines is black w/ a grey center..

    also there was a link a while back where you could decode the rpo codes out of the glove box, if the link below isn't clickable just search for that title..
    I found a GM RPO code and Vin number decoder search engine.

    If you check your glovebox or inner fender well you should find the list of RPO codes for your truck. Paint codes(If they're listed) generally start with a number from 1 to 9. There's about 100 different codes for color so if you narrow it down I can decode them for you.

    Another option is to ask a GM body shop. They'll probably be able to tell you the paint names without too much trouble
