Package Tray Paint
« on: December 07, 2010, 05:01:21 PM »
Please help me make sure I have everything correct before paint. 

Suede paint on top of the dash and all the area trim around the package tray.

Lower front dash where glove box is all this gets Satin finish.

Is there anywhere I am missing?      Is this paint scheme correct?

The metal garnish moldings around the back window and package tray area on my all-original 02D '69 aren't suede - they're just low-gloss paint (like the lower instrument panel area). Only the upper instrument panel forward of the dash pad is suede. You didn't mention what year yours is.

My refinishing info states the following are suede: upper instrument panel, auxiliary speaker grille, rear window defogger grille, back window lower garnish.

It's a '69 and I always forget to put that into a post.   Thanks for all the information.

Photo below of my original rear defogger grille and lower garnish molding; neither is suede - just medium gloss.

I've never seen any rear window piece in suede.
Just the front dash.

My original 1969 with blue interior has the sued around the package tray below the rear glass, and a friends unrestored 69 Z has the (black) sued also.

John & Kurt,

I am still trying to figure out the difference between "Suede & Med Gloss". Is suede similar to satin? Not sure what this is painted but it sure looks like med gloss, similar to yours John.

Various gloss levels are achieved by different amounts of flattening agent added to the paint. Texture is the result of a different additive. For example: PPG's texture additive is DX 1999. When you pull up a formula, you grab the tints off the machine and mix the paint. Texture can also be achieved simply by under reducing and dry spraying. Over reducing paint also alters gloss levels. A survivor and not the victim of deterioration and age is good reference.  Cars with repainted interiors are often done incorrectly.

Thanks for the information Sauron. I think I'll file your post for future reference. By looking at mine...is it right or wrong... or is it difficult to tell?

Sheens are sometimes difficult to evaluate on screen. Try comparing to other pics on this site. SEM Trim Black is close to the original 9266 code. We always had a 9266 gallon pre mixed on the machine as it was used often.
