    You would need the trim code off of the cowl tag (if it is the original interior). From the trim code you would have to go to a paint chip chart for that year which would have the appropriate paint codes for the trim on a follow-up sheet (usually). Then you could get the correct trim DYE codes for the interior from a place like SEM (which happens to be in South Carolina, if I recall correctly). Also a lot of aftermarket restoration places carry the trim paint for the styles of car that is applicable to what they carry. You may have to cross reference a few codes from the same year (Like parts for a 1972 Pontiac GTO or 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle might cross over to be the same codes used on a 1972 Buick GS or Skylark. But you would have to bounce back and forth between the applicable charts to verify. Here is a good reference to start your cross reference fun...Type in the applicable year, and go to the chart and look to the left side and click on the other sheet.

    Do a Google search for SEM paint, and it will help a lot. Lots of good references there. MOST IMPORTANT::: Cleanliness is the most important step in preparation. You MUST thorouhly clean the items as demanded, or you are wasting your time...
