There are like 40 pairs of numbers on it. I have no idea what to look for. You saw it, so it is the diamond, right?
Here are some details on your request ...

From page 9 of this subject:

# GM Paint Color Code Location: Usually found: Glove Box or Rear Compartment (15, 18) (Spare Tire Cover / Wheel Well or inside Deck Lid)
# Other places to look: Driver Side Door Jamb (6), Passenger Door Rear Face, Left Rear Access Door, Left Rear Compartment Inside Door, Passenger Side Sun Visor, Under Driver Seat (5), or Wheel House (20).

There are so many other places for the paint color code to be located for GM cars, so if you do not see the code on those places mentioned above, we recommend that you check your Owner's manual for your vehicle for the location of paint color code. The Owner's manual does not tell you what the paint color code is, but it tells you where it's located on your vehicle. If you do not have the Owner's manual or the paint color code is illegible, contact the dealer with the VIN number on your vehicle, and they should be able to provide you with the information.

Paint Color Code Looks Like:
# Usually a three or four digits and start with a WA, such as WA9795 or without WA such as 9795. If the vehicle is two-tone there will be an L (for lower) or a U (for upper) before the numbers. Example: WA U-7154 or WA L-348D. GM usually lists two codes on every vehicle. There is usually a two digit code, such as 26.
# Hummer H1 paint color code is a 3 digit code such as B25 and does not have a WA number.
# GMC also markets other brand cars under their own name. Toyota, Suzuki, and Isuzu are all examples. If your vehicle is one of these, then the code will be found under the actual manufactures color list, not GM's. If you do not know what manufacture produced your vehicle, contact us so we can help determine the color.

On my '95 it is stuck to the inside of the right quarter panel, as Dave said. On my '99 it is under the spare tire cover as Larry said. I'm not sure what year they changed the location but I would guess yours is on the inside of the right quarter panel.

I'm not sure of the paint code for your Riv but the circled number on the tag pictured below is the paint code, I believe this tag is from my '99 Silver Arrow.

WOW! It looks like they are using the trim tag as a build sheet. Is that right? it has the option code for everything that was put on as it came down the assembly line?

PostSubject: VEHICLE PAINT CODE LABEL LOCATION (s) ?   Mon Oct 12, 2015 3:44 pm

Can anyone out there suggest a likely place to find the manufacturers paint code label? The car is a 1982 and I have looked everywhere I can think of. The car is a red maroon color. The code would verify the correct color. It's not where the tire size and pressure label is like I thought. Isn't there usually more than one label on a car? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

On my '95 the sticker you are looking for is stuck on the inside of the right rear quarter panel, you have to remove some of the trunk lining to see it.

On the '99 it is on the underside of the spare tire cover, it looks like this ...



I'm not sure where it is on the '82 Riviera, you might go to the AACA forum, link below, someone on there can probably head you in the right direction.
