Interior paint

Anyone know if this blue is still available and if not is there another color that is close? Wanting to get started on recoloring my center console here soon. Also gonna try and make a cup holder that will set inside the trim piece for a floor shifter lol.

You have a Regatta Blue interior (1985 Ford code B). I have tried pre-made interior spray paint from LMR in that same color and did not find it to be a good match. It wasn’t really close. Haven’t really looked for other pre-made colors in other brands.

I have a page dedicated to refinishing an interior here:

You won’t get a better match than getting automotive interior lacquer mixed up and put in a spray can. The color and sheen are factory style and of excellent quality. As long as you prep things correctly it will last a long time.

Been debating on respraying the whole interior since the dash has some minor cracks, the headliner is just painted cardboard (so dead nuts on the color didn't notice it at first lol), and the rear panels are pretty faded. So a close match would work for me. I'll check out that link. Not sure why I didn't look there first lol. Thanks
