Correct SEM White for Interior Plastic/Vinyl
#1
Hi guys,

I have the GW white interior on my 73 Mach and have looked at the SEM color chart but not sure which would be the closest white match.

They list these different whites...link to color chart below.

15003 Phantom White
15103 Super White
15313 White
15453 Gloss White
15603 Sailcloth White

Hi Jeff,

My door data sticker says cw for white sebring vinyl seats. Anyway, can i add my 2 cents worth here?

Would you believe, my original white seats are in perfect condition and look real sharp. However, my white deluxe door panels were shot around the door arm rest section, and had yellowed with age as well. The original quarter trim panels were shot as well with age.

I ended up buying new repro door panels from dash's direct and the vinyl color matched perfectly to the original seats.( too bad the fitting up match was a complete joke). I used the original yellowed grab handles from the two front doors, but ended up making a 2k off white solid enamel mix with flatting base added, and i matched the color by eye to the repro door pads. ( your local sprayshop can do this too, and you can choose 2k or acrylic lacquer for your paint , both will give good results). I gave the grab handles a couple of light coats without flex additive and got a top result. That is a good way to go,and you end up with an accurate color match as well.

Finally, i got my local trimmer to cover the original rear quarter trim panels with a matching vinyl to the seats and doors, and that looks a million bucks too. Just some friendly suggestions from Austin!Smile


Thanks,

Greg.Smile

Thanks Greg,

Sounds pretty amazing but your skills are way superior than mine in this area. Looking for a easier solution via rattle can as I hear SEM is pretty good. Post some pics of your vinyl panels if you get a chance.

Greg - interesting idea to have the rear quarter trim panels covered in vinyl.
I have seen many rear panels that have deteriorated almost to dust. Do you have any pics of how they look? (see UPDATE below) And as they covered, how did they prep the surface? I would assume some vinyl trim adhesive but I have some panels that would need some filler material even before they are covered. I hope you don't mind but as you can see I need to pick your brain a little more concerning the recovering of these panels -- Thanks!

Thanks Ray,

Sorry, but i didn't take any recent pics of the old powdery panels before covering them. Prep wise, my trimmer told me he had a fair degree of trouble prepping them so his glues would key in and the vinyl would stick on properly. He basically washed the surface with thinners, and then went about heavily sanding the surface down with a heavy grit sandpaper to remove as much of the soft powdery surface as possible. (around 80 to 180 grit i believe). He then washed the surface again. He told me he felt he had a decent enough surface for the glue to key into.

That's about all i know and can pass on about that Ray. If the plastic in some cases is so far gone, i would think you would have to come up with other ideas to put a new surface on the unstable substrate as best you could.

Cheers,

Greg.Smile

dhvidston,

Thank you very much for the pics. Your interior looks amazing. I always have liked the white interior cars when clean as they tend to stand out and there aren't very many of them out there.

Question for you...on your second pic. Is the metal piece on top of the door panel and the arm rest painted with the phantom white?

Thanks Jeff... it can be a challenge to keep it clean.. but I like the white and its cooler to sit in on those hot summer days...

about the armrests... yes, those I sprayed with Phantom White.. the metal panels I spray painted with either Rustoleum or Krylon... I will have to check and see if I have an old can with name and paint code.. I know it wasnt bright white.. more of an off white
