Interior candy red colour

Post by Rossuk » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:36 pm

Hi guys,

Just bought the Mrs a 2015 1.6 petrol tekna, lovely wee motor.

The interior has some red detailing, centre console, air vents, and most importantly the gear knob. The paint on the gear knob has worn quite a bit but I'm struggling to find a colour code anywhere to repaint in.

I've got the knob off and can see how the R 1 2 3...... plate removes for painting, but need to find a colour to match the rest?

A new knob is £70 from Nissan, and with only 23k miles on the clock doesn't seem like it will last very long.

Anyone any joy matching this candy red colour at all or any other tips or mods??

Thanks
Ross

Some colours must be worse than others, I've heard people say the paint wears away of chips on the interior. Our yellow interior looks as if it just came out the factory and that's at 90k miles now also a 2015 model.

The rest of its perfect, just the colour on the gear knob. Suppose it depends on if you wear rings or not..

Tried that but they no longer have a paint shop for health and safety reasons, just rattle cans.

Mine has the same red interior. The paint code I was given by Nissan is NAH Red.
Colour looks a lot different due to taking pic with mobile.
