Good Morning; Actually, the color is like an eggshell white. As with owning the car for so long, I purchased parts all along the 30 years. I bought the front door pads 10years ago. Then I bought the rear panels 2 years ago. When I started to put the interior together last year, I found the rear panels were bright white. The only option was to either purchase new front door pad or dye the rear panels egg shell white. Being a cheap person I am, I went with the dye that I bought from Herb's Paint. Came out very close to the color of the front door pads. Very satisfied with Herb'

Good morning; The front door panels were bought many years ago form Year One I do believe. The rear panels were purchased from Classic Industries and I don't know what brand they were. I do remember I was stunned on how much they cost. The front fit rather well but, the rear ones needed to be tweaked. I would go with Metro. Be sure the color is what you want as I made the mistake of assuming the colors would be a correct match.
