Default CORRECT interior color scheme??

Refreshing some interior panels on my 1991 245. Currently has some broken mis matched panels. Interior was original blue vinyl, PO swapped it to blue cloth.

-Door (cloth + vinyl) panels are blue
-Door pockets are black
-Plastic "step plate" pieces are black
-Entire under dash plastic is black
-Drivers B pillar plastic is black
-Passenger B pillar plastic is blue
-C pillars are blue
-All interior door handle trim and plastic hardware is blue
-Center console is blue

Going by the VIN plate, interior color code is 5147. I can't find any info on what exactly was blue, other than it means blue interior.

Asking because all the pillar plastic panels are broken/shattered, and want to replace it with the correct factory colors, and anyone who has bought new plastics knows how expensive it is. May as well buy all new everything and swap it to the factory color since I am going to have it apart. Previous owner most likely replaced some panels. I'm guessing door pockets and B pillar should be blue? But then why is the under dash area black?

By 1990 Volvo started using all black with the dash panels. The panels in your car are the correct color. The a pillars were always black. The B, and C pillars in your car should be blue to match the seats/carpet. The door jamb covers were always black. Your door pockets should match the interior color.

You just need blue b pillars and door pockets. Swedish car parts go you. Just search on ebay. They also have the center console/ebrake cover if you need it. Not cheap but worth it if you want the interior to match.

^ That's what I ordered, SCP. A bit pricey, but oh well... I am thankful new ones are made at all, the molds alone for each part that size are probably $50k+...
