So sometime before July I'll be ordering some carpet (finally), and I'm trying to find out what exactly the colors look like (besides black obviously). Besides black I'm considering a dark gray color... I would stick with the factory green color if anybody ever made it curse_sign.gif

Mine is actually sage green (which is on there) but that means I'd have to come up with a good matching green dye for new interior panels!

Now you got me thinkin! :D

Im thinking you have to work around the color of the dash and seats unless youre going to redo the whole interior.
ACC has better examples of their carpet on their site. SEM can be color matched for the plastic.

I did some looking (hence the 'thinking' part) and may take an attempt at dying the interior green... I'm just not sure if I'd be better off finding decent used interior pieces or dying new repro parts. I would love to keep the original green color.

What needs to be redone in your interior ? Doing the plastic is easy. As long as the vinyl is in good shape you should be able to redo what you have. You can always find decent plastic and change the color. I considered doing color changes on both of my cars. I wanted to do the interior in my 81 coupe a two tone dark grey but in the end I just kept the original medium jadestone color.

The wagon still may be getting changed. Im having a hard time getting the SEM matched to the original color. Its not grey, its not green. The supplier has mixed and tinted it multiple times and still cant get it right. Im planning on sending half of an original B pillar to SEM to see if they can match it and send me the formula. I'd like to change it over to the medium grey that came in the mid-late 80s cars but the vinyl piece on the top of the rear door is holding me up. The plastics cracked in more than one spot. If I could find grey door panels for a sedan or wagon I would do the whole interior the same color.

The 1/4 window panels are from (I believe) a Grand Prix maybe? The trim opening for the window isn't as big as it should be. The other panels are in varying degrees of disarray, I'll probably just go on a piece-by-piece basis, but I will have to get different 1/4 window trim for sure. The dash is from a LeMans and is brown but is in very good shape.

I won't be going for 'show car', but I'd like the panel materials to be in relatively good shape, most of mine are kind of 'meh'.
