    Anyone here know what other names or color codes may have been used to refer to the "Lt. Neutral" 52I RPO code for what I call the tan interior in the 2001 Silverado?

    I'm needing to paint a few things and need to find out what paint to get exactly. Most manufacturers have a "lt. neutral", but it is actually a grey color.

    Other places I have seen this interior referred to as a "Lt. Oak", or 101E, but I honestly think that is the color of just my headliner, which is slightly different ligher shade of tan than the rest of the interior.



    here's a link to SEM colors (shows Lt. Oak, and also Lt. Neutral but is grey)

    and the SEM Lt. Oak here is also different it seems

    here's a link for a Dupont pdf that shows the only 2001 Silverado tan interior as "Lt. Oak", but it's a different RPO code??? It's 67, not 52
    http://pc.dupont.com/dpc/en/US/html/visitor/common/pdfs/b/color/sph/SH_2001_GM_compatibility.pdf



    Then this site shows Lt. Oak (67) as a different paint than 52, which is then linked to a Very Dark Neutral.

    Can anyone else out there with a tan interior in their 2001 Silverado help me out? What paint have you used?

    Alright, figured this out finally.

    Perfect paint is SEM “Classic Coat“ Med. Neutral! Very nice quality paint, sprays consistent, and matches perfect.


    So anybody searching for this, there's the answer.
    Just keep in mind that most all other “neutral“ colors from other brands are a dark grey color, not the proper coffee'ish brown that is 52i in an '01 Silverado.

    I am needing some interior paint for my 2001 silverado. Searching online and reading forums it seems like others have had a hard time finding the right color. My code is 52I as well. I'm thinking that the Lt. Neutral is what I need, but I see that you mentioned Med. Neutral was better for yours. Do you have a picture of the interior of your silverado?
