Matching interior colors
#1
I received my interior parts order from NPD last night and found the upholstery set listed in their catolog on pg 8, P/N : UD-13-65-BCW as MEDIUM BLUE, it is the only "blue" color they list. Sadly it is DARK BLUE and not the correct color match to the head liner P/N : HC-13-C and sun visors P/N : VH-13-C that I also ordered that DO MATCH my interior. I received a call this morning from them and they verified the problem and told me that they will work on the problem and that most vendors use the same suppliers. So be aware if you go to order your interior parts. This is by no way a slam against NPD, only a heads up to others as to what I encountered. If we lived in a perfect world, we ALL would walk on water...

Great tip! thumb

Considering how much we spend on our projects to get everything the way we want it, 'staying focused' rather than 'simply assuming' should be the rule, not the exception.

I know I wouldn't have bought 2 wiper motors, or 2 dimmer switches, or 3 DVMs and over 300 each red & blue butt connectors, had I stayed a little more focused and kept better track of what stuff I'd bought and where I stored it. Wink whistling Big Grin

Dusty1,

One of my biggest gripes is some of the reproduced parts are just not up to Ford OEM specs. My take, is if you are going to reproduce it, at least get it as close as possible to the original in fit , form, and longevity. Most of the reproduced rubber parts will not last 5 years. I know this from experience with the Re-Pop products.

Mister 4x4 - I with you on that one!
