    Re: Interior Touch Up Paint

    Among the short list of items I really dislike is the "soft" paint used in the interior. No wonder there is a market for refinished consoles. I'll wait until it has to be cracked open to replace the shifter cables and refinish it then.

    Seriously was there some kind of defective problem with 987 interior paint? I had a couple of scratches in the outermost hinge that holds the seat together. I was going to touch-up the paint but just lightly touching it and the silver comes right off showing a very shiny black surface underneath. It doesn't look like the paint was bonded to the surface. Maybe the interior shop I trade with can suggest something besides pulling the seats to prep and paint the hinges.

    Re: Interior Touch Up Paint

    Let me understand what you guys are talking about. Porsche charges dearly for painted trim. The only painted trim I was aware of is the cheap silver plastic one on dash and doors, and that's why I wanted brushed aluminum instead (which I got, but don't know if it's anodized or painted black though). Thought the center console plastic was just dyed plastic, but it's apparently painted, correct? What else is painted plastic on a car with full leather and brushed aluminum package? Just to know which parts are more vulnerable to damage, to be more careful. My car is still perfect (only 100 miles), and want to try to keep it that way. Thanks.

    Not sure about the 981 or a full-leather interior, but on the 987 with the standard leather interior, there is a lot of painted surfaces that are super easy to mar. The black surface has a beautiful appearance when new. Areas include... the area around the window controls; the inside threshold where the frunk latches are; the center console is painted (full leather package covers it all?); the hinged folding area for the seats. This is all the more troubling trying to do repair because Porsche doesn't offer interior touch-up paint (does it?) in the black finish (but some one had luck finding the color by digitally mixing it at Home Depot) or that approximates the various silver and anodized effects. We keep reinventing the "color" wheel trying to individually match the craaaazy interior paints.

    I went to Home Depot today and showed them the order # for the interior touch up paint. Already applied to the luggage area of my Cayman's hatchback and it looks pretty good! Thanks for the help!

I recently replaced a piece of interior trim and kept the old one in my garage. Today I had to go to Home Depot to purchase paint for my home office and I decided to take the old piece of trim with me to see if Home Depot could match it. To my amazement, they were able to match the paint color perfectly. I purchased a small amount and tried it. As the Brits would say it was "spot-on". Just thought I would pass this along to my fellow Porsche owners.
    Any idea what the air brush kit with compressed air cart is called, I can't find it at Home Depot or Amazon, just the kind that requires an air compressor.
