Interior match paint

I am trying to find some paint to match my interior for a gauge pod. I found some online but would rather just pick one up locally if I could. I dont know if like NAPA, Advance Auto, OReily, etc would have a paint that matches that someone else has used. My interior trim code is 8E. Thanks

Re: Interior match paint

This is the color I am going for, Medium Flint. I wonder if it would be easier to just get the Glowshift pod.

Re: Interior match paint

Check out your local automotive paint stores, Places that sell good stuff like PPG, etc. Ask for SEM products they have a whole line of rattle can stuff that you should be able to match perfectly. SEM also has a cleaner and adhesion promoter, looks factory when done. I just had to match some parts in my son's jeep looks great.

Re: Interior match paint

Thanks, does anyone know the exact color of SEM paint to match the Medium Flint? I know my local Advance and OReilys have SEM paints, just dont know if they stock them or have to order.

Re: Interior match paint

Yeh, I have read some where some people said it didn't match well. I would hate to spend $33 after shipping on a spray can and it not even match. I could probably get a good match at a body shop for not much more than that.

Re: Interior match paint

Thanks for the help. I just bought some gauges, pod, and chip from Diesel Innovations and he going to send me some Isspro paint match for the pod. Talk about great service.
