Searched forums far and wide and have ran outa options. Wanted to see if anyone else has similar experience.
Bought dual guage pod (autometer ) for my 02'. Interior color code is ' Dark Charcoal'. So figured easy enough right? Went to latemodelrestoration.com and ordered a rattle can of OEM Dark Charcoal interior paint. Painted the pod... No dice. Its way way lighter than actual interior color. Not even close actually.
So, after reading some forums, found some people saying actual color is Midnight Black from Ford, which is actually a really dark grey. Well thats gota be it. Go to the Ford dealer, order it ( its discontinued but they found some in St. Louis) Got it Friday and sprayed the pillar pod again. Hold it up there... still a shade or two lighter!! I am at a total loss now. All I can think to do now is to local body shop next to see if they can help, or find a hobby store and try and eyeball a dark grey to match. Already spent $50 to paint a dam $30 dollar guage pod!
Anyone had a similar expierence. Installed a guage pillar/pod on thier Dark Charcoal interior? What did you do to match it up????
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
