Help...need 1969 interior red paint code - 02/20/19 07:43 PM


We’re at the point of painting the dash on my 69 convertible car. The car now has a deluxe red interior, can someone please help me out with the correct red interior paint code and satin / gloss level. Thanks, David

Here are a couple color charts that may help some. However, neither differentiates well between the two reds (dark and medium) for many parts for some trim codes.

Thanks Jim, is the dash above and below the dash pad the same color? Is it the dark or medium red and what gloss? Thanks again for the help.

The top of the dash is a flat gloss otherwise it will reflect light unto your windshield. The front dash I believe is low gloss but I've seen may medium to high gloss.
