Need help with 66 Fawn interior color

Im nearing the point where I can paint the interior of my 66 and I want to get the original fawn color. Im new to painting and before i step into the PPG store next week and try to get a close match I tried a search on this site and got this from the astronaut but there is some tweaking and somethings I just dont understand. I do want it to not have a gloss and more of that sheen he is talking about so there isnt as much of a glare when the sun hits the dash. Can anyone recommend to someone new to painting how to achieve this at a PPG store, knowing what to order? And how much paint to order as well for the interior?

It's Spies Hecker basecoat reduced 50%, then added 15% hardener to the total volume. No clear was sprayed over it; this way it has the correct color and sheen, and the hardener helps with durability.
