Budge, I think I found the missing link... for the dash. Monopol Valcrepe VK 8538 paint! Available in black and grey.

He describes the whole process, good detail pictures and even the MSDS. I doubt I will get this in Australia, but let’s see what I can work out...

Been googling for Monopol paint for a while now without any luck... following links on a few other websites though, there seem to be a company in France that specialises in this paint.

wrinkle-effect.fr

they show an “ochre” colour picture (4th swatch from the left, second row) that may be close to AC 135 Gris Claire ... or at least close enough to paint over it.

closer for you to trial Budge and report back? 😬😬😬

The Christmas break has been useful to work my way through all the small items, rubbers, interior parts and the like.

the dash top and knee rail got reupholstered in black vinyl, with a nicer grain than the previous choice

The exhaust shields got a coat of heat resistant silver as well. My top shield (the one on the bottom left) isn’t in good condition and I also don’t think it is the correct one anyway... might have to go hunting for a better/correct one.

All the labels, choke pull and brass switch surrounds were cleaned and tidied up.

The aluminium chassis number was the first part to be reinstalled.... downhill from here: how exciting!

The glove box will hopefully be pushed back into the right shape by soaking it in water to make it pliable and then drying it out locked into its new shape.

All the dash plastics needed a coat of gloss black as they were too scratched and faded.

The rear view mirror got a coat of black wrinkle paint as well.

Also cleaned up the headlight surrounds, muffler, sun visors, all sorts of small rubbers and more. Am almost through the lot, ready to start reassembly
A few items will need rechroming, some more boxes of parts need electroplating, but all in all, progress has been good.

SCORE!!!!

found a colour swatch set and a fabric set from 1967 on eBay - now I have actual samples of some of the colours I am considering. Bleu D’Orient with possibly viel d’or fabric... or red jersey after all? Or blue on blue... plenty of time left to decide.
but at least I don’t have to second guess anymore what the colours look like in real life.

if anyone wants access to the colours let me know, I am sure we can work something out... nuancierds.fr lists all the colours for 67.

Budge,

here maybe another option for the ID dash - Interpon make a powder coat in “ripple” called Dune Textura GL352A. The colour is a good match, the texture not as rippled as the one that the wrinkle-effect.fr guys produce, but their colour doesn’t seem to match...

So this may be a decent compromise!?

Thanks for thinking of me. Yes, that sample does seem to be a good match, even if the texture/ pattern is not quite there. A little smooth perhaps. At a simple level i suspect that if you sprayed the right wrinkle (but wrong colour) with the right colour - it would come out looking something like this.

That paint swatch of yours is an amazing find! I've been after one of those for my 1968 for ages! There is one to view on one of the sites on line, but it's not the same as holding it in your hand.

Before starting the reassembly I thought it might make it easier if I lay out all the parts and try to group them. Sorting and finding the right bolts and screws will be another fun part...

refurbishing the b pillar trim, which was badly stained and broken, was the next job. I strengthened the plastic with a strip on sheet metal and redrill the holes for the seat belts. I then also painted the dash parts, steering wheel, and other associated parts that needed a coat of gloss Dune paint, a close match to Gris Claire AC135.

My attempt to flock (not flog) the glove box with beige flocking ended up in a patchy mess - not a great first attempt.. not enough glue me thinks...

Might rethink my approach - maybe I line the glovebox with fabric or else... TBC.
