Default Wouldn't i be great if reproduction plastic came...

If I were king and made reproduction plastic parts like seat backs, dash parts, arm rests etc...
I would do them in light grey or maybe even a darker grey. This way if someone needed to dye them, (This is usually the case! ) it would be much easier and take much less color to get them correct. Marks might also be less obvious.
Just sayin'!

Not a bad idea. I noticed that many plastic dealer parts are a yellowish tan under the applied color. Examples, interior of the underdash A/C duct on the '68, underside of plastic console on the '66, the wheel center caps on my '02 Tacoma where the silver has worn thin. All the same yellowish colored plastic.
