And the primary interior metal paint color is different too (bright blue is a variant of Marina Blue, medium blue is a variant of Nantucket Blue). And the darker 0-gloss paint on the top of the dash is also different (bright blue just has a darker variant of Marina Blue, while medium blue has a totally different hue of blue which, like the carpet, is a whole lot darker than everything else).

I count at least 9 different colors of blue on the various pieces in my medium blue Elcamino interior!! By contrast, a bright blue interior is pretty much all one color, except the carpet, dash top and dash pad being a little darker.

Bob - I am still getting the inside put together. Had a holdup on the heater core -- we lost it!! I didn't want to put the carpet and seat in until that is done. But we found it earlier this week so hopefully can get it all done in the next couple weeks. Will try to remember to get a pic posted in this thread.
Thank you!
