      Does someone know what the color name and/or code is for the red of the doortops (1958 aquamarine coupe)? Is the square weave carpet supposed to be tan or oatmeal? Difficult to see as my old pieces are very worn and dirty. Thanks for the help.

        Best thing you can do is to take swatch of your interior into your local paint store and have them custom match a color that's closest to it. 1958 models normally came with Oatmeal carpeting.

        Hi,
        what I know is that the car belonged to Mr Smith in Pasadena in the 60s. In 2011 it was sold by Carplanet to Belgium. I'm in the Netherlands. Would love to find out more about the car.

          On your first page you show the car interior and the dash panel looks Meissen blue and red vinyl dash padded top looks red. This is the same as my 59 356A. The darker red almost maroon top garnish rails on the door I have for over 50 years wanted to know the exact colour ! Never found a reference though. Good idea to get it matched. I will try to put some photos on of my original factory dash and door to give you a good idea.

              How can I make those photo's larger Justin !! What is procedure? Easy to add these from my documents but do I have to enlarge them first?

                Its really easy and much like the old platform the site was on:

ID:	108962 Once you have your photos loaded into the system its just like the old platform. Place the curser into the test box where you want that particular photo to show up and hit the "large" icon next to it.

ID:	108963 Also don't bother with the Camera Icon on the left side that is for the photo carousel option. Instead look to the right hand side of the screen and click on this icon to attach your photos. Much simpler and clean display. Hope this helps.. Justin

                  Hi Roy, thanks for the photos. My dash and og color is for sure aquamarine. The padding on the dashtop is red indeed. I will take you're photos to the upholstery guy as a reference to choose color. I received two samples for square weave. Oatmeal and Tan. Think I will go with tan.
                  thanks, jeroen

                    Yes Jeroen I thought the pics of the original paint in area of car are deeper in colour than my Meissen Blue 703. The dash panel did look like mine thats the trouble with photo's ! Its hard to match from them. I have oatmeal but tan is very nice will go well with yours. Its good you have the original paint number for the car!

                    Hope it goes well !
