Console repair Saddle Paint and restore

1972 Blazer Console restore. I repaired a 4 inch crack on the top back where they all split. I used 2 part epoxy with fiberglass matting on the inside. Took everything apart and cleaned and prepped. Then sprayed it with Sem paint. The color is a bit lighter than I want. I may re-
do it if someone can tell me a product that is closer to factory Saddle. overall I am very happy the way it turned out.

Re: Console repair Saddle Paint and restore

Console looks great. What sort of prep work did you do to the console prior to paint? I've got a console to repair and redo in parchment.

Here's a thread on attempts to match the dark saddle interior in a 72: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s....php?p=7956593

I scrubbed and cleaned it with soap that's used for black streaks on RV's. Dried it . Then used a three step Sem spray procedure. 1- degreaser paint prep 2- spray prep for letting the paint stick, 3- Sem Saddle paint.

Re: Console repair Saddle Paint and restore

Good info thanks. I couldn't find a helpful guide on the SEM website last time I checked. Steel wool works great. Lately I've been using bronze wool with a similar effect.

I've got a container of the SEM soap, cans of plastic SEM plastic prep, and an adhesion promoter. Since I've had no luck matching a NOS parchment door panel I'm going to paint an excellent set of black door panels too in addition to bucket seat panels and a NOS set of black arm rests.

I am also doing a parchment console. Here is the color some are saying is close. Sem 15103 Super White. It sounds to white by name but I will see.

Thanks! I've got the same. I've had the cans sitting atop a bench in the garage for months. Every week or so I invert the cans on the superstition that I'm keeping the pigment in suspension

Re: Console repair Saddle Paint and restore

I'll tackle the project soon as the temperature improves and will do some split repair to the rubber mats with rubber cement

I got some paint from classic industries. It's OER branded, but probably just relabeled from colorbond or someone. Test sprayed and is very very close match. p/n: PP818 COLOR COAT SPRAY M42 DK SADDLE

Re: Console repair Saddle Paint and restore

The guy on ebay who sells restored consoles media blasts them. Last I spoke with him he said they are all the same color once the dye is removed. I would imagine its real low pressure blasting.

I used acetone to remove the old paint, took it right down to the fiberglass. lots and lots of rags.

Good, glad I can help, looks great! Haven't gotten around yet to spray rear armrests yet, but maybe this weekend. Might touch up some other pieces as well
