Vinyl questions

Hey all,

I have a couple questions for those that installed vinyl on their inside trim. I'm thinking of doing this and trying to figure out the best color match to Blue Candy.

Did you guys use matte or gloss when you matched your color?

Anyone have an idea of what is closest to blue candy? I'm currently looking at 3M 1080 M227, G227, G47 and Oracal 970RA Matte Azure Blue Metallic. Any others you can suggest?

Did you guys just jump in and buy some in a certain color or did you go to a local shop to see the colors in person?

Thanks!

I got mine at a local shop and they had red that was almost perfect so I bought some. It's not very expensive stuff so you won't save lots by ordering it in. I'd go ask a sign shop. The one I went to could have printed me some the exact colour if I didn't find what I wanted

Thanks for the reply. When I first started looking into this, I searched for body shops that also did vinyl and struck out in the Rochester area. A quick search for sign shops shows many of the Rochester places do vehicles, so I'll have to stop by one of them and see what they have in stock.
