colorbond paint # help

I want to repaint my interior pieces on my 2001 SLK 230 using color bond interior paint in the spray can. I called the dealer and they said my code/name for the yellowish/creme color is 215 sienna beige. I called color bond and they do not have this color but they have several colors that might match? Has anyone used color bond paint before and maybe can give me the code # and name of shade they used? Thanks a 20190521_191818.jpg

This is a tricky one.

Even with the correct code, it may not look right.

Even the Volico siam beige is not an exact match. As Avel Du said, it doesn't look right and you'll end up doing all of the plastic parts + door inserts and handles. To do that you're looking at minimum 3-4 cans (they are tiny). You will also need the primer and clear coat/lacquer.

It adds up and therefore might be more cost effective for you to strip the parts out and take them to a spray shop.

I used VLC to touch mine up, including totally re painting the Centre console (the forward section I bought off EBay to modify and install the Android was actually Blue before I repainted it).

Results were excellent, especially as a semi temporary solution, when my V8 Install and after that Exterior Paintwork is all finished, I will be getting it all professionally re covered in Anthracite Leather with Blue Stitching

Looks very tidy now ....................
