    Question What's the color code for the stock A-pillar?

    Hi,

    I have a triple guage autometer a-pillar pod on the way. Anyways, I was curious if anyone knows the color code for the stock pillar. The autometer pod comes in black, but I want to paint it to match the interior. Also, what is a good paint that wouldn't chip would be ideal. Thanks in advance.

    Edit: This is for a MY02 WRX BTW.

    im not so sure they have color codes for specific pieces....but my guess to find it would be....take off the a pillar and check the back of it...i have the same pod and i cant remember if there were any numbers on the back of the stock a piller piece. My advice would be to just leave it black, cause it looks fine that way cause the entire dash is black

    Lo-tek gauge pods match perfect. and their cheap too. Only 5 bucks to have them paint it light gray

    I already returned 2 Lotek pods. One was broken and the other didn't fit my greddy 52mm gauge. Anyways, I wasn't very happy with their quality or the way the gauges sit in the pod. It's pointed too far towards the window. I guess "Lotek" is really low-tech.

    I have to decide. Whether I leave it black and paint the other pillar black to match or just paint the pillar pod gray...shrug hehe.

    I used a can of "warm grey" spraypaint from a paint store and it matches perfectly.

    I'm getting the autometer one. I heard the one for the wagon is a little funky, but the sedan one fits nicely. However, it's black so I need to decide what to do.
