full-sized pickup and bronco interior colors & paints
1980 - 86 FORD TRUCKS:
I've put together the following spreadsheet showing the interior colors available each year as well as the code that goes with each color. In addition, it shows what I believe is the correct SEM Color Coat paint to match the original color. But, note that these are not off-the-shelf paints. You will have to have them mixed by a SEM dealer as the pre-canned paints available at the parts stores are not the correct match for our trucks. How do I know that? Here's what I got from a SEM technical consultant via email:
We manufacture only 50 aerosol colors in COLOR COAT for plastic, vinyl, carpet and velour and would be happy to send you a card since the online versions are too inaccurate to use as a color match. We also have over 6000 formulas created to match all GM, Ford, and Chrysler interior colors from 1976 to present as well as many other colors from some foreign manufacturers that customers have sent in for us to match over the years.
So, putting that together with the fact that the off-the-shelf paints have 5-digits codes and the formulas that SEM shows in their exact-match tables, included below, have 4-digit codes, it is pretty easy to see that there must be some differences.
The following tables are from SEM's web site here:
