Exclamation **Help! Dash applique paint code! HELP!**

Can anyone help out by finding out what the paint code is for the dash applique? I believe it is called graphite silver. I'd like to make sure and then find out the code along with who sells it, where I can get it, etc.

This is a must for those (like me) who don't do the ABL installation properly!!!

Thanks in advance to everyone who can help out!

man, I must have gone through 20 shades of silver/gray today. I will only be able to match it up once I get the code...since you really can't tell till it dries.

That sucks TAG I know how you feel I scrached my door panel in the upper corner waiting for some IOM spray to fix it.

yep. Well...I fixed the left side and it looks perfect...maybe too thick. But, we'll see how it turns out once I turn on the lights. Now...off to the right side!

I don't have the original code, but I found a paint I think is 95+ % accurate. I used it to repaint the smaller trim that I Fubared, and you can NOT tell that it has been repainted. One thing though, I think the paint on the trim is water based, because when I tried to just do a touch up, the original paint lifted. I had to strip the whole piece, and repaint completely..... One tip, if you are going to repaint the whole trim, I strongly suggest you start with a clear coat, and then the color ( if you don't, the paint will look uneven ).

Here's a pic of the paint can.....

That's EXACTLY the same paint can that I almost purchased from Auto Zone yesterday!!!

I've got someone trying to get me the paint code and company that makes the paint. If that works, we'll be set. Now, did you have to repaint the entire piece?...or just touch up? Because if you repainted the entire piece, you'd never know the difference. If you just repainted a small portion, you might be able to tell.

But yeah...I saw that paint too and was like....holy crap...this is almost a perfect match!

OH Yeah, you would definitely see a slight color difference if it was just a touch up. I had to repaint the whole trim :bangdesk:

Oh no, and that stuff is a nightmare to remove I used a one sided blade, and CAREFULLY cut between the the trim, and the snap piece. Once the pieces were separated, I used a rigid flat piece of plastic and went to work removing the remnants ( you should have seen the blisters on my hands ) I then purchased some automotive exterior trim double faced tape ( basically the same stuff ), and used that for reapplication.

Ahhh...got it. Worst case scenario, I'll do the same. That paint is almost a perfect match.

I got the driver side done perfectly....might add a millimeter of paint. And now I'm working on doing the passenger side. It's coming along MUCH better. NOW THAT I TOOK MY TIME>>>

Working on paint code still and where I can get some. Hopefully we can come up with something soon.

There is a part number on the back of the trim pieces. You've got to remove them to see it but you should be able to order it through your dealer. There is a pic of the code in the thread on EL wire ABL install

Question. Paintscratch.com has some interior paints and some codes listed there.

They appear to have the bavarian silver for the wheels, and some other interior colors there.

Any of these match the silver?

I have the codes posted somewhere...think this is a dupe thread. I will add them to this thread later when I can find them...I got the IOM code, graphite silver code, neutral code, and the synergy green code.

Haven't messed with it.

I have....something.....on the way.

So, I'm not touching anything else until it gets here. The way it sits right now, the light bar across the dash might be a little too thick for my taste. So, I need to repaint. But, that paint might show a line. So, a new part would be in order or repainting of the entire piece....or something else...lol
