WA926L / 59 Silver Birch Metallic is what i have , cant even tell when its dirty , nice everyone sure complains when i want them to paint my hood though
Becaues they dont want to do the clear or they dont know how to paint ?
Find someone who paints candy colors to get it done right.

I have a black granite metallic 08 Colorado...the code in my glovebox says U501Q. But here's the thing...I went to get a tonneau cover and they used the right paint code, but it comes up as "Carbon flash metallic" and what I don't get is my tonneau cover looks green in the sun...sometime's its black, sometimes its green...I don't get why it does that. I've been told that I have a "flip-flopper" sometimes its one color & sometimes another. It doesn't bug me too much because you can barely tell its green...it only does that once in a while. But I don't get why it keeps turning up as carbon flash...I even went to an Auto Color store and they showed me the exact list of what makes up the paint in my code...and there was a green in it...I don't get why it says it has green in it when my paint on my truck doesnt show up green...its only the paint on my tonneau..which was the same code...I'm confused!

Yep, that is what comes up for that code for my '09. Now with what you've experienced, I am more than worried about getting a color match tonneau. Just more to wax. But I bet it looks good though.

Sorry, I don't mean to worry you or anything. Honestly, my tonneau doesn't even bother me, yeah I wish it didn't have the green tint. But its not even noticeable unless you know about it. My friends didn't notice it til I said something. It'll be black one minute, then green the next. I don't know why it does that because my truck doesn't. But when I got my SS front bumper painted, I told the guy about how my tonneau turns green & they made it perfectly black granite metallic...no green tints at all...so that worked out perfect. Just let the painter be aware. I was thinking about going to Auto Color and checking on my paint code...they take a picture of your truck, well a really close picture of the paint, then they get the code some way...so I'm going to get that done just to see if my codes right or whats going on. I don't know why its always coming up as carbon flash metallic, and not black granite metallic. But really, the green doesn't even bother me...its not even noticeable, and it doesn't even stand out...you can look at my pics and even see that it doesn't appear green at all.

Am I the only one on here with greanade green? I read there were only 278 in north america of this color...and no one has ever posted picks of their green truck, but me....I have never seen one, nor heard from someone who had seen one and knew it was the grenade green, not just the forest green. Anyone?

Thanks
