Paint matching

I need to do some touch up painting on the bumpers of my '87 coupe. Original build order show color code B8402 Silver Metallic. That code number does not appear on any color charts that I have found. It does not match any GM color codes for that year. Any help in finding a matching color ???????

What i do in these situations is remove the gas door and take it to a paint supplier to do a custom color match. Due to time and the elements, even if you had the correct code, new paint would probably not match very well.

Best of luck

Thanks Stacey. It does appear that it very well could be a Beretta color. I am doing some research with Dupont and Sherwin Williams to see if I can verify the color.

It may well be but that will probably only be a starting point as getting a good color match will require matching a sample from your car.
