Leather interior identification

Post by 1972nail » Thu Jul 12, 2018 5:09 pm

I'm going to refinish my leather interior and need some help identifying the colour. I checked the VIN decoder and the car originally had Oregon Black leather so it has been changed at some time. I believe it may be Oregon Dream Red but I'm not certain. Can anyone ID it for certain?

Pop your VIN into a decoder and the interior code should be listed.

In the original post I said 'I checked the VIN decoder and the car originally had Oregon Black leather so it has been changed at some time'

So the VIN decoder in my case is useless......

My bad, there's a site that lists all the interiors by model, that may help.

I don't think that's Dream Red. It looks a lot brighter than the seats in our last zed which were Dream Red.
There is a red that's brighter, but I don't know the name...

EDIT: Looking at this again, on a different laptop, and the seats look darker than before - so looks like Dream Red now :?
There again the door trim still looks lighter... That's one of the problems with digi photos I guess, though it's not quite the blue dress/gold dress issue :)

It looks like Dream Red may be a little different depending on whether the seats/trim are Oregon leather or New England leather...

The attached photo is my car and it is - Vollleder New England/Schwarz/Traum (LBT5). It looks very similar.

That's the colour chart I was looking at and that company's colouring kit is what I'll be using.

I suppose I'd be better asking if it's Oregon or New England leather! As I said, the interior appears not to be original so the VIN look up is of no advantage, and that also explains why the seats are so badly worn and dried out for a car which has just turned 50K miles.

Now that's confusing me..... Must look at the VIN decoder again when I'm back home next week, as there seems that there may be be another code I've missed, LAT5 or LBT5.

The code I missed is LASW which confirms that the interior has been changed from Oregon Black to either Oregon Dream Red or New England Dream Red.
