G'day everyone,

I have done a search on this but cant come up with a paint code for the red interior paint for FE with Fall Red / Parchment Ivory interior combination. Anyone help me out here? My car was originally Cobweb grey / Parchment Ivory but am going red instead so nothing to match it with. Thanks, Al

Fall red is the colour of the material not the paint.
Decide what colour red you want and then have it mixed up. A number of paint shops are able to mix modern paints in the original colours

The trim code for Fall Red/Parchment Ivory is 568.  A couple of suggestions:  Casbah Red is an HD Premier interior red paint colour (warning: contains lead); Goya Red is an HK interior paint colour.

One of the FE brighter red colours was Gypsy red.   The Gypsy red over Cabot grey exterior used a red and white interior trim. The interior paint colours on the doors etc are the same as the exterior paint colours.
The exception is the single colour exterior cars which had a different matching paint colour on the interior surfaces to compliment the exterior.
The code for Gypsy red is 253-7702
Is this the question you are asking

Yes, I would like a code for the red paint that would have been used for dash and tops of doors etc. It seems to be a really bright fire engine red and the Fall Red seat material is more of a darker blood red. Al
