    Guys need some help with my '72 GS 350 restoration. What is the correct color for interior floors/quarters/rear seat back. Floors appear black while the quarters/seat back appear red oxide primer. Also what color red is used on the body rocker moldings? Lastly I've re-chromed my headlight bezels and seen some cars with them left chrome and some painted body color with a charcoal/flat back color around light opening. Mine were painted, but also what is correct. Thanks for any help, Bryan.

    It depends on what plant your car is built...And sometimes depends on the final color application..
    Most people use the 1/8 inch pinstripe tape commonly called "Tomato Red"
    Bezels have chrome edge, but charcoal around light.
    A lot of good resource material here: http://www.buickperformanceclub.com/page1.htm

    Your car is a GMAD build car from the sounds of the red primer(Framingham, Freemont etc).Flint was the only plant that doesn’t use the red primer. Just copy what is there.
