I have had great success using PPG's Elastomeric Color System (SC
Series)to refinish the interior pieces of #3387. Formulas are
available going back to 1972. This product is a dye, unlike the
still available Deltron DIU Interior Basecoat Color product which is
essentially a paint.

This SC Series product is specified for application to leather,
vinyl, and plastic, and is even said to restore the color of velour
and carpet, though I did not try it on them. I used it on the
interior plastic and on the vinyl floor mats, and it worked great on
both. I even sprayed a black armrest and after a single coat it was
indistinguishable from the saddle armrest that I sprayed at the same
time.

Be sure to follow application directions to the letter, and properly
prepare the surfaces. I was careful to use the plastic cleaner and
prep, the vinyl cleaner and prep, and the plastic adhesion promoter.

The Lt Buckskin number is SC24174. I used it on all of the saddle
colored interior plastic pieces. I also used it on the perforated
board headliner, even though that is not a sanctioned use for this
product. It worked well. It hid all the water stains around the
sunroof, and it looked 1000% better, but I suspect a DIU paint would
have been a slightly better choice. One quart was barely sufficient.
Had I done the seats, I would have needed another quart.

The Dk Saddle number is SC23942. I used it on the dash pad, the vent
panels, and the floor mats. A pint should be sufficient, unless you
intend to do the carpet in the hatch and on the back of the seat. If
so, get the quart.

Good luck.
