I was in the process of ordering some interior dye does anyone know what color this would be and if the rear quarter panel is too bad to restore thanks any help would be appreciated.
What year is you Malibu & did you look on the cowl tag to find you interior color code? I have the PPG chip books covering the complete run of our generation cars to find the listed name for the color.

I sprayed the plastic interior pieces for my friends 79 Camaro with that color.
Make sure you prep the plastic really well before you do it and use adhesion promoter or youre wasting your time. This is fact.

24 is your color code for the light blue inierior. PPG's code is 14782 (semi-gloss). The dash is a shade darker (& listed as dark blue) with PPG's numbers being 15120 (semi-gloss) & 15149 (low gloss). Same color codes for '78. Since I have the book out, the 22 is light blue poly (met.) with PPG's number 2955.

Be aware the dash is probably a different shade of blue. My friends dash and console were a touch darker.

Thanks I appreciate all the help I don't need to touch the dash its near-perfect no scratches or cracks just the b-pillars, door panels and 1/4 panel upper and lower.👍
