Default Dying door panels. Need Advice

I bought some XLT door panels at the JY today. I thought they were the same color, but low and behold, they are a lighter color than my interior.

So should I dye them and hope for the best? or exchange them for credit at the JY (I paid 2 extra dollars for that option, thank GOD that I did)

I would return them for the same color.

I have used the duplicolor interior paint and it is not really that close at all either.

return them. the dye will never last and you'll have to keep redoing/touching them up.

There is a place called SEM that makes interior dye that is always pretty much spot on to factory colors. You give them your factory interior color code from your door jamb, and they custom mix the color to match. This stuff is highly recommended on FTE, and seems to last. The results are always extremely positive from when i've seen. It's hard to find what you need on their site, but they sell their paint in local auto paint stores across the country, so you're better just calling them instead of searching their online deal.

Don't worry, the site is a pain to navigate. Just give them a call and they'll help you out.

I don't recommend dying or painting any large panels. it may look good for a while, but it will chip or flake off eventually. i swapped everything in my 95 from the light grey to a charcoal, but i wrapped my dash, door panels, etc in vinyl. the speedo bezel, dash vents are all factory pieces in the charcoal.
