Correct finish for changing interior color

Hello everyone,

New member here with my first post. I'm in the process of converting a 1966 Lemans interior from fawn to black. I need to paint interior items like kick panels, dash, seatbacks, seatbelt buckles, etc. Has anyone here had experience with this? What finish should I be using to look most original? Gloss, semi gloss, matte, flat? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Early Pontiac interior paints such as the 1966 were basically two degrees 0 & 60 degree of gloss.
Which equates to Flat and Semi.
The Dash was always 0 to prevent glare while all other parts were 60 degree. Don't forget to use a Flex additive for the plastic parts. Sorry you've decided on changing out her true colors. You just don't see many good color interiors anymore. I too almost changed my '66 due to how hard it was to secure the correct color parts to put it back together but the Code 220 Dark Aqua won out and I'm glad I kept it. Best of luck with your project. Cheers

I know you're not soliciting opinions on interior color, but...

SEM Trim Black is the correct sheen for the satin finished parts in your interior. I haven't done my whole interior (already black), but the seat backs turned out exactly like original and still look fantastic after four years.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

I just had some 220 mixed up and put in spray cans. Wow, Acrylic Lacquer sure is expensive now!

Got the paint and it's a really nice match for a 51 year old car!

I dyed the interior on the tempest 12 years ago, for the seats and door panels no problems, but the dash it lifted about 4 years ago, where it curves down, the center section, about a 4 inch section.. I thouroly scrub cleaned everything... applied bully dog adhesion promotor. The dye I used was not in a can, I decided to get it in liquid form to put into a Spray gun, this way it could be evenly applied.. keep in mind at one point someone could of applied a armor all type protectant, so clean very well, I even used a damp rag with reducer, to assure it was as clean as possible..
