Hello all. I have a '68 XR7 with 6G Dark Ivy Gold interior (per Marti). The original color of interior components appear more dark green without a metallic sheen. I purchased a repro upholstery kit because the old seat coverings were beyond repair. The new upholstery kit arrived and the vinyl has a metallic sheen in the dark green. There was only one choice for a Dark Ivy Gold upholstery kit and they took many months to arrive, so not returning them.
Has anyone ever seen any 6G Cougar with metallic sheen Dark ivy Gold colored door trim panels and quarter trim panels?
Back in 68 did Ford or Mercury offer Dark Ivy Gold interiors in both non-metallic and metallic sub-options?
There are three different ‘Dark Ivy Gold’ SEM vinyl paint in rattle cans available:
VP-5795 Dark Ivy Gold Metallic
VP-15644 Dark Ivy Gold Metallic
VP-15854 Dark Ivy Gold
Maybe the metallic versus non-metallic is a Mustang versus Cougar thing.
I am wondering if my original dark green trim panels will look strange next to metallic Dark Ivy Gold seats or if I should paint the trim panels metallic Dark Ivy Gold.
