I hear SEM makes very nice paint in spray cans. I personally never painted interior parts so I cant say how well it looks.

I just did my dash and other interior metal pieces. I used PPG lacquer.

Technically, if he cares, there are 2 different shades of interior paint. 0% gloss and a bit darker for top of dash and 60% gloss for lower dash and the rest of the interior.

Yea actually he does care and wants it to be 100% correct,where can he get correct PPG codes from?


Thanks

SEM is not the proper paint for the application you are talking about...PPG or similar automotive paint is the way to go...and it is super easy to scratch those pieces when installing door panels and window mouldings and what not...

Shoot, thats right. The seat backs would be metal in this case so using the SEM paints I mentioned would not be the best to use. Those are all metal parts.
