         861H          MO
480 542 596 599 625
        410 420 480 466

The car is a 1979   280E imported into Australia from Germany .I need to replace some trim round the edge of the doors but cant get a handle on the colour!

Any advice would be welcome

Interior Color Code

I'm not the best source for deciphering the number plate on your radiator core support, but World Upholstery offers some pages on their website that might be of help. 

Hopefully this should get you headed in the right direction -  http://worlduph.com/samples/vinylmbzmid.htm

We're not used to seeing the 22, but that's RHD/Automatic trans
