    I have to fix some rustspots on my blazer but I can't find the sticker with the color codes for the paint. I thought they would be on the SPID-sticker on the glove comparment door but they are not.
    The colors are midnight black (wich the paint shop could find for me) and Steel Gray Metallic (wich they couldn't find).
    Anyone know where to look in the car?
    I have been searching this forum for the last half hour but couldn't find anything about this...

    Try 90L as the secondary color (Grey Metallic) the other listing is 55L (Russet Metallic). The Black is 19U and try the stripe accent 19A (Black and Grey two tone). These are from the 1987 Service Manual that GM dealers had. Any other related Qs just ask I have all three books and wiring manual.

    My book shows Black isn't offered in '87 but in '88 they have a Code # 20 and '87-'91 their is a Black Sapphire Metalic Code # 98.

    On your RPO Sticker in the glovebox do you have that sticker still... What codes are on there.. Do you have any of these codes?

    ZY1 ..... Paint, Solid
    ZY3 ..... Paint, Special Two-Tone
    ZY5 ..... Paint, Exterior Decor Package
    19K ..... Black Top (Model Option)
    90K ..... Steel Gray Top (Model Option)
