Yes, Ray, the instrument panel and the steering wheel centerpiece were
originally the same bronze color. Moss Motors sells the paint in a spray can
under the number 220-530.
The filter canister was a slightly darker bronze. Moss doesn't carry that
one; you'll have to try a paint store and look for a slightly darker color
than the dash bronze turns out.
