Anyone know the code? I want to pick up some SEM to paint my dash. Just want the OEM color. Anything else I need to paint it, like some top coat or something?

I don't know the code, but if you search the SEM website, you can find a dealer near you that sells it, most body shop supply houses do. I went to one in Lynn MA that sold it, and they had the color charts. I took a flake of the paint that had come off my dash in and compared it to the swatches (or you can take the color chart out to the vehicle, I brought one out to my truck too), and matched it up.

When I went there I parked then ripped a piece off of my cracked dash pad and walked in LOL Laughing

I've picked up 2 different SEM sprays
one Justin mentioned along time ago (to light)
the 2nd Med Gray (I think Bobby mentioned that) closer...but STILL to light.
Now...neither one is terrible....just not matching a 15 year old interior
I have the #'s on the cans out back.
I'll grab them tomorrow AM

Looking at the samples, medium gray seemed closer, though if you look at the link you provided, under GM cars, medium gray was listed with the number you gave. Oh well. Worst case I will have to do it again. But I found a lot of folks online saying they used medium gray on 94-96 SS. I'll take pictures.

Thats why I did what I did
Bobby had said medium gray so I didnt expect more then 1 choice.
Your # has a better chance of matching now that we know my # didnt Razz

I have seen guys on other forums remark that the medium gray is a TAD too light, but without mixing, you can't nail it exactly. Close enough is good enough for me.

17123 is what I was given for my car too, and its way lighter than the TBI grey. It looks better for the LT1

...... Ive dyed 100's of interiors, domestic & import, in every color. I have never seen a paint for interior match 100% .

.... people tend to forget your trying to match used, faded, worn 15+ year old material. Do like you said, if at glance and overall it matches, then your good. Arrow

At this point the dash is so bad I'm going to order 3 more cans of the 17123 and spray the whole dash over so it'll all match. Laughing

Any point in disconnecting the battery? I have the lower dash out (I broke one plastic clip above the comfort controls in the process, d'oh!) and I am ready to pull the dash out. Just worried about the airbag going off.

Edit:
Nevermind. I just went ahead and did it. No problems. Time to clean!

Anyone remember the order for putting the air bag piece back in? I have the vinyl piece in and there are 2 metal hooks which go on either side, a long bracket for the bottom as well as a larger metal bracket that goes around the entire area. Plus you have the webbing which holds the vinyl air bag cover in place. I just quickly removed it without taking pictures or noting how everything was put together.
