I am paint a 1986 Chevy Silverado and the primary color is Light Blue Metallic - Code 21. The truck has a second color that goes around the truck in a stripe approximately 18" that is a darker blue but I cannot find the color code for that color. Does anyone have any suggestions

it should be on the tag SOMEWHERE some auto manufactures scatter those number all over the tag and are hard to find in you don't know what numbers or letters your looking for. if you can take a good picture with your phone and post it on here someone can probably decipher it. or take the picture or write down all the numbers and letters and visit your local autobody jobber, or body shop.

I would look at the Build Tag on the Cowl (little 2"x3" tag on the Cowl)
There may also be a sticker on the drivers Door frame and one in The Glove box.
Depends on year and model but almost all GM made cars have the Cowl stamped plate.

The code on the Tag will need to be broke down further from a Master sheet a reputable Paint store should be able to help you with this.
