FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

For those who would like to refresh their beechwood interior trim.

SEM Camel #15173 is dead on!

Currently doing all my trims on my 89 GTA

As you can see it made a big difference on my door handle.

So far I have done over half with only one spray can.

It's not even close to being the correct color. It is too light, more of a yellowish tint.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

In person it look 10x better.
I compared trims that were not sun damage, and its pretty dead on.
i'm pretty anal about the right color.
Otherwise I wouldn't dye all the trims.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

My memory tells me it's close if not dead on. I always liked that color with a white car. A lot better than Dodge's burgandy interior with white cars.

+1

Computers/camera quality make it hard to determine. Looks good to me.

White GTAs are an awesome combo with tan. Especially the 91/2. Beautiful cars.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

Also remember that there are two different type of brown color interior for GTA. The dark brown color and the very light tan color.
It seems that you have both of the colors in the same pictures of the interior parts.

I attach a picture of my own GTA interior that has the very light tan color so you can see what I am talking about.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

This maybe the darker color with leather option you are referring to..

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

Did you use 15173 for both panel and carpet? Is there a part # for carpet spray paint?
I know 15173 fits right in for the panels but the carpet is a lighter tan.
Any ideas?

I used the SEM dye on the both rear speakers cover.
They look better, not perfect but they help with the pinkish color they were.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

There were 3 different tan interior colors used for the GTAs.

1987 was a light Camel color.
1988 - 1991 was called Beechwood.
1992 was more of Beige color.

Beechwood is the darkest of the 3 colors.

Re: FYI Beechwood Dye - SEM Camel #15173

SEMS 4310 is the correct one. It has to be mixed at a paint store as it is not available off the shelf in a rattle can. It is spot on exact match for an 89 TTA beechwood interior. This site won't let me attach the SEM chart and mixture but here is a link for that. Go to post number 11.
