BLOODSWEATSTEEL said:The door panel thread got me thinking just how long it took me to find exact paint to match my interior trim. I tried almost every paint store in town in my search (and I even work in a 1,000,000 sq. ft. Sherwin Williams warehouse.) I purchased about ten different types in my quest for the perfect paint. While some were close, there was one CLEARLY above and beyond all the rest.
It is produced by a company named SEM, and is available through a few auto paint suppliers. The color I bought; "bluemist" was an exact match to the factory interior. I couldn't believe my eyes. It blew Krylon Fusion, VHT color-dye, all the popular aerosols, custom-mixed jobs........everything right out of the water. Come to find out, they are also the only Ford licensed aftermarket manufactrer of aersols out there. (prolly explains the match. .)
Anyways, may make it a little easier if anybody is having the same difficulty I had in my quest. :thumbup
Good work !
That's great to know. I'm so ticked at having to pay custom mixing fees I'm thinking of taking the 30 mile drive across the New York state border and buying more vinyl touch up myself !
Does SEM have a website or a parent company's website ? I need saddle brown
