Default Interior restoration

Working on my 04 interior again. After having done the seats pictured, I had the ceiling liner re-done for $120.00 here in San Antonio. Now I began replacing the vent trims and dash by the radio in Mercedes W170 Faux Carbon fiber. I have re-ordered Michelin pilot AS3s and been reworking the alignment, its bolts/bushings and front sway bar. Nevertheless, for the interior I think the steering will be the next part to update. One thing about our dark grey dash is that the Dinaliner deading material matches its color perfectly. I was able to make a repair on a area that had held a GPS and been ruined. Pic included:

the SLK radio dash trim is smaller than the crossfire. I think I will give up instead of expanding the top by the air vents some how.

Okay so I'm trying to restore the paint on my 04 crossfire where the dash and glove box is located. Anyone know what color that is?

Deon, I don't have the paint code. I re-purchased my glove box with the vin number for dark gray. I have seen four colors.


All, I will be posting the picture of the CF SLK installed radio dash trim (now off the car) and the inferno red custom paint dash I decided to continue with. I ordered a suede Dash Mat in smoke color to see if it would look better than a 13 year old plastic (3 weeks to arrive).

Click on this for the paint codes and go to the interior paints for the 2004 model.
What your color is I do not know but it is there.
Look under ZH, it is dark slate gray or medium slate.

This it a used OEM ebay dash trim painted to match the exterior color:


I bought the spray can at the dealership and a bottle of clear coat for plastic. It turned out A+

What can be done with the worn-out gray area near the ignition key? Or e-brake center console?
