I'm going to do the SEM process on the front seats and dash pieces. Will report back with updates and images.

Were you able to find the code? Do you know the name? Someone I work with worked at the assembly plant that made those seats. He is going to contact some people and get us the info we are after.

The name of the interior color is "shale". My dashboard near the glove box is peeling with a dark brown color showing through. The glove box door is also peeling but that one is a light color underneath. The people at SEM were very helpful, I also found some neat videos at the Vinyl-Pro website.

Excellent info. My contacts didn't go through. Did you get a part number for the SEM? How much?

Interior trim color codes are three digits and end with an "I"
Such as 19I or 15I.
Look on the SPID label, should be in the glove box.

The GM color code for Shale is 59 or 15I

Vinyl-Pro sells the SEM products to consumers. Their # is 800-750-7939
Jim and Steve at SEM are very helpful at 800-831-1122

FOR LEATHER:
Clean leather first with SEM Soap #39362
Scuff with gray Scotchbrite pad
damp towel and dry
Then SEM Plastic and Leather Prep #38353
Spray that stuff and wipe in one direction
Scotchbrite to dull surface
Plastic and Leather Prep one more time
Then the Classic Coat #17203 (Shale) in 3 light coats, 5 minutes between coats.

FOR PLASTIC STUFF that is peeling
Clean with SEM Soap,
Sand lightly with the Scotchbrite pad to remove as much of the peeling outer coating
Clean with SEM Soap
Spray the SEM "Color Coat Aerosol" # 15793 and check for adhesion.
Do 3 light coats.

FOR PLASTIC STUFF that was never painted and is not going to peel obviously. Make sure that your plastic wasn't painted. If painted go to previous section.
Clean with SEM Soap
Test with lacquer thinner in a hidden area.
IF TACKY, use "Sand Free" adhesion promoter "38363"
Spray color coats over the surface while still tacky

IF NOT TACKY after lacquer test,
Clean with SEM Soap
Spray the #39863 or 77723 Adhesion Promoter
Spray a medium color coat #15793 and wait 5 minutes
Spray a 2nd coat and wait 15 minutes
3rd coat optional

I will confirm these procedures with SEM and get back to the furum.
