The #13379 interior color sample seems to compare very favorably against some original parts:

Here is the #13379 up against the dash panel (lighting on this picture is not real good):

And finally here is the dash top sample #13217-- I will be taking this sample out on Friday 12/21 to compare it to dash top on my 732-Z Coupe.

I have read many times here that getting the dash tops right is a challenge. Some time not long ago Pete Sgro had posted info. from a RM color chart:

quote:
"Alpha-Cryl formula containing No 849 Suede Concentrate produce material of approximately a zero gloss as required. R-M Lacquer formula, as listed, produce standard gloss colors and should be top-coated with a mixture of equal parts of No 849 and No. 827 clear to achieve the desired degree of gloss."


I can read this a couple ways. At first I thought it was simply saying the dash top needed to be clear/suede top-coated? But I read this more closely with my painter today and came away with a different interpretation: I.E. if the formula ALREADY CONTAINS the suede it will produce the required zero gloss (without top coat)-- BUT if used AS LISTED (I.E. WITHOUT the suede) THEN the suede topcoat is required.

Feedback anyone????? The #13217 mix DOES contain the suede additive, and it seems to look right...

WOW Charley. Not only are you guys taking the time to fight this dilemma but your showing the whole world how! Merry Christmas to me Eeker

I think that dash top is going to be the hot ticket! Can't wait to see what the other cars dash looks like.. I bet its a tad bit darker as blues tend to fade in that direction.

For the sample with the plastic trim pieces on it.. what can you say? If you factor in all the variations out of the factory.. I don't know who could ask for better

Preliminarily I would say you have got it!

Please please please take the time in this thread to post mixing techniques, spray techniques and paint can lables if possible.

Please tell me your vendor for these paints when the project is a success as I'll call them up and get the stuff straight from them

Looking forward to seeing more! GroupWAVE

And the saga continues... "Paint Can Blues" part 2... Findings from interior colors comparison to 732-Z donor car.

To sum things up: mixed results (ARRGH).

#13379 looks like a dead nuts match on the interior colors. #13217 looks like a match for Dash top color-- but the Texture differs from dash top on the car. I need some feedback on this, will discuss the texture issue further-- stay tuned...

First the #13379 Medium Bright Blue Interior Lacquer: #1 of 3 samples...

You have no idea how happy I am to see the gauge pod comparison! excellent, excellent, excellent

Charley.. I gotta try to show you how varied that suede job on top of the dash varies from car to car.. I will endeavor to photograph all the dashes available to me during next week.. some are very suede others just look like dulled down paint.. I would love to see some clear closeups of your dash top sample

Its slow as molasses around here but hopefully guys can chime in and post some pix of the dashed in their cars.. THIS BENEFITS ALL OF US GUYS! GEEZ Roll Eyes

And now (drum roll) the #13217 Dark Bright Blue (dash top)--

The color looks like a match in my opinion... in order to get a better sample I used Tom's trick of looking for fresh color under the dash pad... #1 of 4...

Hi Charley.
There was a post here about awhile back about top of the dash texture, but I can't find it to link you to it. So here are the pictures I posted on it for you. This dash is an original paint dash. It has the texture you will need to try to match for your Pacer. I believe the color for the top of your dash should be darker than the rest of the interior of your Camaro to prevent glare from the sun. If I am wrong guys please chime in here.

#13217 Dark Bright Blue (dash top)-- #2 of 4--

The dash top exposed portion had many years of dust buildup, along with years of sun exposure... We tried to clean it up, but it was still far from perfect... nevertheless note the lesser-exposed portion around the defroster vent... I think it looks pretty darn close...
