Do yourself a favor and clean the surface with Windex or rubbing alcohol to get rid of any finger grease, grime etc. I used a small hobby brush. The Matte finish hides a lot of imperfections. Its an 8 ounce can, the size of a whiskey glass...also listed on the label.

Thanks,I finally got a match with one of the combinations posted previously in this thread, though I dont remember which one.I did cover a few spots and though the color match was right on, my poor skills were far from.Since my trim is a bit busted and the fact that the previous owner did an awful job trying to cover the scratches, I decided to take my car for a proper paintjob.

My go-to shop where I do all my maintenance/repairs also does bodywork and paintjobs and the owner showed me a Cayman that had some of the trim painted gloss black and I instantly fell in love with it, so I think Ill go that route.

Default Behr Paint code.

Captain Baker: Since the picture is no longer up, could you post the numbers on the Behr label? I know that this is an old post, but I think it will be popular forever!

Yeah can you print out the Sand Beige plastic interior codes again for the paint? My 2006 Cayman with Sand Beige interior has all kinds of plastic nicks I need to touch up. I have the rear center console in exterior color so my ash tray is guards red and wont help me. Id have to hunt for another piece of trim to take into Home Depot for a match and not sure what that might be.

I just bought this from fleabay, and itís actually a pretty good match. One bottle you can touch up a crap load on leather or the plastic bits. Itís not a perfect match, but pretty good for me. I touched up small areas on my handbrake, steering wheel, door window mirror switch triangle piece, and a mark on my seat.

This was scanned by Home Depot from my ashtray lid (2005 997) and is a perfect invisible
match for all my interior beige plastic. No guarantees it will match other peoples though.

I found a piece of door trim in Sand Beige I pulled off when Bumperplugs did some replacement painted parts for me. Im going to take it to The Depot this weekend or next week and get some paint to match the trim. I may also take your codes with me as backup. Will report back on findings/results.

I probably answered this, but SEM is the product you want to use. auto paint store mix this. Just take a part for sample to match. Its usually $40 pt. Dupont also makes the same product.
