PostPosted: Sun May 20, 2007 7:29 am    Post subject: Armrest colors Reply with quote

I'm about to put TMI mesh platinum interior panels in a titian red / beige grey 67 13 window and... I've got got some what appear to be mid to dark grey armrests that go on the interior panels. However, they look an odd color combo - have I got something wrong? WW lists platinum silver as the armrest color but what does this color look like?

Searching the classifieds reveals my mid / dark grey, como green and some sort of tan color. Whats right for a 67 deluxe?

Thanks,

Al

I am not 100% sure but they look like a lighter grey in these photos:

They should have studs sticking out of the back of the arm rests. If they don't, they are earlier arm rests for the beige grey interior.

Hopefully this is the correct shade - it looks like it. There are studs on the rear with brackets - all looks good. I suppose cost cutting made them all grey. Now that I read the WW color charts would the rear carpet have been grey instead of the more appealing oatmeal?

And this is the rear interior almost finished;

we recently did some work on an all original platinum interior bus and the arm rest look like those grey ones but you could tell the platinum color was sun faded off them over the years showing the grey underneath...

the good news is we just got in new repro arm rest in platinum, como and grey...

Gosh I have everybody looking out for an arm rest pad for my middle seat. Everett, thank you for bringing it up here.

A buddy of mine saw a como pad at the Spring Meet in Washington last week. He went to pick it up and somebody snatched it. I understand from Greg (Campingbox) that the guy that got that pad had needed one for a long time. Greg and Clara said that they would look for one at the Classic for me. Bus people are the greatest.

Anyway, yes Anthony, I would buy a repop even if I had an OG one. Just so I could have a backup. The grey works perfect for me.

Al, OGVelvet has a '67 Velvet green deluxe with the platinum interior. If he doesn't chime in on the you might shoot him an email for a photo. I might see him next weekend at the Woodburn, Oregon show and I'll see if I can't get a photo. I seem to recall that the arm rest are platinum.

I just picked up this photo from the classifieds. It all looks like OG upholstery and the arm rest are sure enough grey.
