78 Y88 Gold Special Edition paint codes...help please??
« on: December 12, 2016, 02:04:34 PM »
I'm in the middle of a factory correct Y88 restoration and have the car jammed out and ready for paint. I am curious if their is a specific paint code for the dash board and a-pillar trim. Everything I have seen leads me to believe its a darker shade of gold, I just cant find a code or how to achieve that color. I've attached a link of the pic of the info panel if that helps. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I don't have a pic of my VIN tag, but here is a pic of my dash and pillar. It's all original and untouched it it helps.

78 was the first year for camel tan interior.  It's all suppose to match pretty close.  Dash, pillars, glove box, seat backs, console, etc.  All the same color although there could be slight variations piece to piece.  It's a nice clean look.

There are lots of shades of camel tan depending on vendor.  Find one you like and use it throughout the interior.

The dash wasn't painted.  The material used was the camel tan color.

By the way, Fulzgold's seats look original.  They are faded almost to white.  They were a lot darker from the factory.  That's a great car Fulzgold.  You can tell that car was well taken care of.

Those are interesting mats, don't recall seeing that version before. Anyone know what vehicle they came from?

You can't see the mats in my old Y88 (had in in '86) but they were the same as the ones I have now.
