Viponds interior paint, which shade of black?

I have red interior that needs a repaint. I want to change the dash and centre console to black, leaving the seats and door panels red. Viponds do four shades of black. I want to match the existing black in the car as best I can (the parts of the door panels that aren't red, the top and sides of the dash). Does anyone have a suggestion which would be the best shade of black to get. Viponds tell me colours 221 and 211A are the most popular.

My car is black on black. I used 211A. It turned out great. I was a little skeptical using a brush to apply. But it looks brand new. I did take the all the pieces out and soak or wash in a big Rubber Maid tub. The old paint is easy to rub off. Be careful taking the chrome rings off around the guages. Push the tabs from the back. Good luck

Thanks, it gives me comfort if someone has done it before. 211A sounds good.

Yes, it's my intention to take all the bits out before painting.

I'm currently doing the exact same thing as you -- I have ordered the 221 from Viponds and looking forward to seeing some results!
