    Does anyone know the correct color. It seems much easier to find information on Chevy than GMC. HELP!

    I went to the recommended site and they said that the GM paint code was 514. When I contacted a local auto paint supply store, they told me that the GM 514 code was a brown color. Searching on the internet, I have been unable to find a color code chip for that GM color as another paint store had suggested.
