  • New radio install

    Just picked up a new radio with nav, phone, etc. The mounting plate is dash panels are a beigey? color that comes with the sand interior of a 2004 Merlot. Anyone have any luck with matching paint? Seems a step above Home Depot is called for. Any ideas?

    Pop out the little piece just forward of the shifter and below the A/C-heater panel and take it somewhere and have them match it up - or do it yourself...
    You have to pull that piece anyway to install the radio.

    My '02 red interior is nearly a dead on match with Rustoleum Satin Candy Apple for instance.

      Years back, when I did Merlot with the bronze panels, I used Tower Paint for the match. Alas, they are no longer in business, that I can find. Do a Google for spray paint matching and something should show up.

        You can take your piece to any auto paint store, they can match it.
        No matter where you go, there you are!
        If I'm not here, I'll be somewhere else !
