Next project after fixing my roof is repainting the interior. I found a lot of threads telling me I can oder fluid paint and touch up the spots. That would be ideal because I don't want to take the whole car apart. Only question is how do i find out what color to order?

Thanks
Marcel

I used the original siambeige 215 from an ebay seller in Germany and it looks flawless.

Very easy to appy also.

I ordered the touch up pen from germany through ebay. In my case the anthracite grey was not a great match.

Pic 1 the "before status"

Pic 2 after painting. The new paint is darker and glossier than the OEM paint on my interior.

Pic 3 after a light sanding to remove some sheen from the new paint.

conclusion: somewhat better than untreated, but not very satisfied with the color match and end result

I ordered a spray can of anthracite grey from Germany. While close, I agree with above that it's not a perfect match (I pulled/painting the armrest part of the console). It's close and works good for now.

I'm considering a complete disassemble & respray of the entire dash/console this comming fall when it's time to put in storage again.

Our SLK has scarlet red interior so the chips were very visible. I used Volico´s touch-up pen and have to say that I´m very pleased. I also bought a small can of spray paint which I intend to use on door handle.

Tcrankwa's interior looks awesome! I have a ton of chipping on my 2001 320 that needs to be taken cared of. I want to pull the whole interior, sand it, and paint it. Any pointers?

I haven't searched yet (let the flaming begin) for some DIY's on this but will in a sec. It'd be a fun project...turning a black interior into something different. Any advisement on spray paints? And are rattle cans sufficient enough or would I need to invest in an air brush?

Hmmm. I just tried ordering some spray paint from volico.de and it says it can't ship to the US. Anybody had luck doing this? Is there a US supplier?

looks great and thanks for the link to the ebay seller...what if I didn't want to paint the panels with a factory Mercedes color and wanted to find my own custom color...anything special I have to look for in rattle cans? Or do they make any special type of interior panel rattle can?

When I ordered the website said the same thing, contact them via email and see if the ship spray paint to the US.

what is the type of paint they use for the interior? is it a vinyl paint or just some ordinary spray paint?
I'm sure it's a special paint just for this application. I notice when it sits for awhile it has to be stirred/shaken to mix. The paint I used is a flat finish. They also make a semi-gloss sealer.

I want to upgrade my console to something similar to yours Only i have a black centre console. would the paint cover this or is it only good for touch ups of the same color?
