Any ideas for color matching the gray paint behind the front seats?

Recommended Posts

The last owner of my 997 C2S seemed to chip the back of the driver seat and it is bothering me. The dealer said to go to a hobby shop to match the color. The main problem I have is that I am color blind and wife wife thinks I am a bit obsessive and will not go to a hobby shop with me. I am sure someone else has solved this problem. Thanks.

I am in the same boat... perhaps I'll pay the hobby shop a visit and see what I can find for the both of us... the ex-owner's golf clubs have put some scratches on the back of mine as well.

The PPG paint codes should help you dial it in. I

do not know what the codes are, but a good detail

shop should help you get started.

The baby poop color of some of the plastic is called Volcano Grey, and it's not a paint code within the Porsche system. We have done some other pieces to help a few folks out with their car not matching, but it's usually the other way around - we paint the Volcano out to body color or alumalook.

A local touch up guy might be able to fix the problem if it's small, otherwise email me for some other options that might be more costly, but would be stunning on the car and eliminate all of the poop plastic. :)
