Does anyone know of a source to get paint for the dash that will match the original paint that Ford painted the dash at the factory??
I don't want to use a generic paint-I dont want to have to repaint all of the interior plastic parts of my truck-I just want to do some touch up of the original factory paint on the dash. I need a perfect match.
My truck is a 1992 F150 with the factory "Granite" interior color-Ford calls it code "J" on the VIN sticker.
Dupli-Color makes vinyl/plastic paint that is available almost anywhere. In my experience it rarely matches, though.
I've had the best luck with SEM brand paints for interior parts. Check with a local automotive paint store. It's about $13 per can.
I replaced some interior parts recently with aftermarket pieces and used the SEM product on everything else. (Interior color change, Light blue to dark blue). The match was perfect. On your original parts, you may not get a perfect match due to fading of the original pieces.
The SEM product sprayed and laid out great too. You could almost just throw the can at the parts and it would look good.
Don't forget to use the recommended adhesion promoter.
The interior color paint/dye from LMC truck did not match well at all on my 2003 F150. Med Dark Parchment was no where near the factory. I did have better luck with medium parchment, but still different enough to notice.
