Does anyone know of a source for paint to match interior colors. I am trying to match the color "steel" for my 2006 frontier XE.

i have been curious about this for a while now....no one has ever posted up a better option than to replace the part. or paint it another color.

I have told that you can match the paint from an automotive paint supplier and will just go that route if no one makes the paint premixed.

SEM vinyl dye SEM Products - Home Site best sh*t in the world, I have been using it for years on vinyl and plastic, they not only have dyes but paint as well. I have done color changes on all my bimmers and the stuff just works with good proper preparation. If you try to use paint it will crack, no matter how much prep you do

What you need is Plastic Prep and the Color Coat. you can get this at automotive paint supply houses, I have tried some others and they never stick

paint solution

I took a piece of the interior to the automotive paint supplier. They do sell a vinyl paint/dye. They matched the color. I scrubbed the piece I needed to paint, used some the SEM vinyl prep and sprayed the part. Came out great. Proof will be how well it holds up but the guy at the paint store swears by the stuff. Saved me a bunch of money on ordering an over priced part from Nissan.

I have used it on plastic parts with great results, even on some exterior parts such as mirrors and it holds up pretty well, on vinyl the stuff is nuclear, I am talking years of no problems with all kinds of abuse, works on carpet too!

Just a thought, but you might try melting a crayola that matches and use that for touching up your vinyl.
