    My turn!

    76 4cx39 E 38586
    26D AM6 11L 19T
    12B DF3 B88 C09

    Now, I know the first bit is

    1976 (76) Buick (4) Electra Limited 4 door Hardtop (CX39)

    I know 11L is paint code Lower and 19T is the paint code upper. Thats is. Can someone please fill in the blanks, and perhaps put up a link as to where the info is sourced from, so others can access it?

    Love ya work!

    I spent 28 years in a Buick Dealership...I've seen alot of ID plates.
    I can only remember that color combo on 1 other Electra or possibly and OLDS 98, but I do not remember the year.

    If you can clarify the codes behind your Trim(TR) and Paint(PNT) spaces on your cowl, tag they will be easy to handle.

    Can anyone assist, need the exact location of a 1978 Riviera Trim Tag. It's not on the firewall by the power brake booster.
    Thanks, Paul

    Attached is a picture of the trim tag location info from the 1978 Fisher Body Service Manual and one of an actual tag from a 1978 Riviera. In 1977-1978 the Riviera was built on the B-body platform.
