72 Mustang Q-code
Beautiful job! What year is yours, 71? Is the color code from SEM the same for 72? I need to dye my white panels as well. My deluxe door panels are unfortunately repaired once already and I don’t think they could be made to look good enough for me again so does somebody else make a much better replica than the ones you bought?
I have the Mustang Market door panels on mine and I like the fit. It takes some time and nerve to trim the door release openings, though. Another member had an issue with the color (vermillion?) Not being correct but mine are black so no issue for me. Not sure how the white would match up.

BTW, I've had these in for about 25-30 years and they've held up very well.

Never mind on the question about what year, I see you said you had a specific door speaker grill for 71, so I'll assume it's a 71. So is the SEM color white for 71 the same as 72?
From what I can tell it is the same color and I’m extremely happy with the SEM paint and how it matches the color of the headliner.

My advise is to watch the YouTube videos on the prep work and follow the 4 step process. Be patient and go with many light coats vs. fewer heavy coats.

Thank you very much, can you please give me the part numbers that you used?

Last update for a while due to upcoming trip. Installed the glass tonight and will take a few weeks off. Hopefully seat covers will be done in that time and I’ll get my rear moldings back.
Your interior is really turning out great! Can't wait to see it complete. (y)

This is the interior paint I used from NPD. I used 6 cans of white between the door panels and pieces, quarter trim panels, headliner molding and a pillar pieces.


3 cans of black which covered the rear most fold down metal piece, both fold down trim panels, kick panels


One of these buy you could buy smaller if you were just doing the interior


One of these


And two cans of adhesion promoter
