Not sure if I'm on the teal bandwagon.

I think that maybe a metallic robin's egg blue might work better?

Fortunately not. I made sure to sand the area with a very fine grit of sandpaper to smooth it out just in case but it was minor.

In my mind I'm picturing Ford's Performance Blue, as seen on the 2013 Foci now, but the teal was the only vinyl I had that was at least somewhat blue. It's a decent match for the interior lighting but too light for what I want.

I did a very quick and crude edit of a shot of my interior, using Performance Blue on one trim piece and keeping the other the yellow that it was. Comparing the two, I think I'm leaning towards a colour match.

Tomorrow I'm back at work so I'll quickly talk to my manager, who deals with the body shop we use and see if there's a way to get the pieces in for a quick paintjob. I wish I could send more off to take advantage of 'having' to paint pieces, but I don't have anything else.

Might be a lot of colour.

I just called our bodyshop, tomorrow I'm dropping off the door trim for paint. It's about time I got around to this, I guess the damage was the catalyst to speed this up.

Color is our friend, and... Have you looked at your car recently? LOL

I'd do the yellow for the silver on the doors, and do 3M Dinoc on the center stack.

That much yellow on the center stack would be a bit overwhelming.
