ColorBond LVP offers an economical alternative to replacing interior components and is a perfect way how to refurbish a car or truck.
ColorBond customer “John J.” reports: “The color match on of ColorBond LVP was EXACT. Normally you would have to paint an entire section or "feather" the color into an area, but that wasn't necessary because the color was an exact match. I was able to spray a portion of the rear bolster and you can't tell where the spray ends, and the original color starts. I ordered ColorBond LVP in OEM certified color #1875 Infiniti Wheat, and it was the dead-on match. Overall, the difference is astounding, the paint is durable and is not coming off at all. The interior is back to looking great!."
I used the BMW Black paint to refresh my BMW E46’s center console plastic trim as I didn't feel like spending $200 on a new piece.” Says Irek G. “I am very impressed how closely it matches with other pieces of the console, including the brand-new cup holder piece! Very good product!”
3. Door Panels
J Roberts says: “ColorBond LVP is a GREAT product! I ordered one can to try on my heavily faded Jeep TJ door panels. The ColorBond OEM correct color #163 Chrysler Agate paint was an exact match to the original color. This vehicle spends 8 months a year with the top down baking in the California sun. So, at 16 years old, all the interior plastics and dash panels are faded. The door cards were by far the worst, so I started with those. I'm elated with the result and will be ordering a few more cans to do the rest of the interior.

“I chose #1869 BMW Luez Cinnamon Brown, based on others' pictures and reviews of this color, to match the old carpet in my Fiat X1/9.” Says Dox. “I’m massively impressed with the color, application, coverage, and general look of the paint. The carpet is still soft, and it seems to have really absorbed into the carpet. One can covered this two-seater small car's carpet. It looks really great.”

Charles H. says: “I am in the process of bringing a CRX back to life after sitting for 3+ years applying the trim paint. I am very pleased with the results of Pro Tech Trim Color this point. The finish of this paint returned the trim to what I would describe as the OEM when the vehicle was new. I would not describe it as glossy, but it has just enough gloss to look new.
