So I'm working a steering wheel project and I'm trying to match the color code or title of the steering wheel volume, cruise and active voice control buttons. Or the color code or title of the cover they are mounted on.

You will have to take it to a paint sales shop. I think its too small for them to scan the piece to get a color. They may be able to try. Thete will not be a code for the color of those pieces. They do have charts you can try and match it up with.

Roger. I actually stayed up late trying to find it and came up with:




Shale Metallic 46/WA130B

or
GM shale WA149B

I may have to order both to see which is the closest.

Is the goal to fabricate custom buttons? I have some suggestions if it is.

No. I'm working on a steering wheel mod. I'll reveal it when it's complete. I did find the Shale paint though from:

I'm looking for a metallic paint that matches the switch plate. I going to try and see if a collision shop would be willing to match and provide a small quantity. My other problem is finding someone to do a small project leather cover and stitch.

Go to an automotive paint store. They can match up the color and if you check aroundsome can put the custom color in a spray can for you. The least most any shops will mix is 1/2 pint. May be 50$ but the paint store can mix 1/10 th of a pint

Update.. Found a color that is very close, if not dead on, to the switch color.

Oreilly's: Dupli-Color Perfect Patch 8GM0493 Dark Bronzemist (76 WA528F)

Project will be revealed in time.
