    I have a T7 Saddle Bronze RR. It has a tan colored interior. Looking to see what and where I can get the correct paint? Spray can? 3402CA38-C6D0-4199-9E89-47D0AC16FE57.jpeg 1930E2C0-6194-4283-BA24-523E052BADE5.jpeg 8B2EB4BD-7E0C-4870-9F48-2F50F43E26CD.jpeg 385649D5-7578-4356-AD48-24B489290D04.jpeg

    This is a very interesting topic that has many opinions and much debate.
    The matte dash finish on our cars has many perplexed. It's really not that hard IMHO.
    My local PPG guys pointed us in the right direction on my son's resent Duster build.
    We shot the dash with the correct base color (fortunately it was the same color we did the entire car in, B5 Blue). Then rattle canned some SEM Matte Clear, high, foggy and dry over the top of it.
    I think it reproduced it perfectly. Pics of the gloss B5 compared with the matte below. Same base color, different clear.
    I hope this helps.

    Buy the way 2 fairly wet coats with the SEM matte clear then fog/dry with the final coat.
    Good luck.

        Welcome aboard Nina!

        Powder coating is another option. It's available in literally thousands of colors and a "leatherette" texture can replicate the factory's job without a bunch of extra work.
