Smile Paint codes

Anyone have a way to convert gm paint codes to dupont to name color and get the mix code.

GM code is U63 for one, the other code is U382E

Thank You for any help here.Larry

you have everything that you need to get the paint in any brand.
u63 is wa63 and u382e is wa382e. thats it. names dont mean much. the factory names the color, the paint brands name it again, etc.
