Here are a few documents to help you figure it all out. Click for the big version. These are plenty big enough to read, but your browser may not show you that. Download them. Special Thanks to Heiko Kraatz of for many of these scans and Anne Clendenny for sending in a build sheet and trim tag information.

1980 Interior

1981 All Color Codes
A word on interior colors: There is a flat and semi-gloss listed. The flat is obviously used on the top of the dash, but I wasn't really sure if it was used elsewhere. Recently, in a set of Rinshed-mason paint chips, I found the following statements:
USED ON: Upper Instrument Panel, Radio Speaker Grille, Glove Box Door, Package Shelf and Valance, Rear Window Defogger Grille.
USED ON: Garnish Molding, Roof Rails, Windshield Pillars, Steering Column Jackets, Floor Console.

Pontiac claims "The Yellow Bird should be very appealing to female prospects." I thought so too.
