Trying to find out the colour code for the trim on my vp wagon, I'm told it's the sandalwood colour but I haven't got a number to get a custom can made up etc.

Also trying to do the same with a vg but I need to take some photos for the thread.

I just went through this as I have restored a second hand centre console with a colour change to Steel Blue 23i. To get it colour matched you will need to send a trim piece to the paint shop. Even then, if there is sun fade then the match wont be exact once you spray it.

Unless I take in a piece and go off the plastic side that's been against steel the whole time..
Looking like that'll be the way to go

Thats a possibility. I think even the texture will make it appear different too. I had the door grab handle and the radio surround colour matched. The grey was a bit off but the blue was pretty much spot on.

Prep is the key to getting a good quality finish. I did 2 coats primer and 6 coats colour.

This was supposed to be colour matched to the radio surround, its not close and even the way the sun hits it makes it look different:

The Steel Blue however was a really close match:
