1966 Fairlane interior correct shade of blue?

Hi Gang,

Need some help identifying the correct shade of blue for vinyl dash on this interior. The dash blue matches the seats and door panels.

I ordered medium blue metallic vinyl paint from Ecklers but it was WAY too light. I have a shipment of dark blue coming Eckler's but fear it may bee too dark.

Any assistance would be much appreciated. the interior code off of the plate is 32A.

I don't know if any of this will help you, but I will put my $.02 in. I have been doing a bit of restoration work on my 1965 Ford Custom (Galaxie).
I do not know if the colors of our interiors are the same or similar, but they might be. I sprayed the kick panels and parts of the dash with
Dupli-Color #BCC0388 (Teal Metallic). This is a Chrysler color. Also, very close in color is Dupli-Color #BGM0539 (Light Blue Metallic). This
is a GM color. Both of these are, I assume, exterior colors. My '65 has several shades of blue in the interior. I also cut from some hard board
a piece to go on the package shelf (below the rear window) and sprayed the rough side with the Dupli-Color #BCC0388 and it came out very nice.
These colors are available at your auto parts store. These are, of course, exterior paint colors and are somewhat glossy. And, i used these colors
on plastic and wood (hardboard) with good results. I do not think they would work on vinyl.
Purchase and try one of these cans of spray paint and see if you like the color match. Also, i purchase and used a Molotow brand Liquid Chrome pen,
available on-line or at a craft store, to touch up some chrome plated plastic (small outlines) on the dash. This worked out nicely, too. For durability,
these painted items should probably be sprayed with a clear coat, too, but i have not done that yet.

Third try. Look up Touch Up Paints in New Orleans. Based on your color codes they will mix to OEM specs for your car in spray or brush bottle. I have used and so very pleased - great spray nozzle; purchase "pro" trigger attachment (worth the $12). www.automotivetouchup.com. Worth the look.
