Anyone know if the interior trim parts… for example the cargo ceiling speaker grills… did they come in a matching grey for grey interiors?
The ones I have seen in gray interior 80s seem to be tan in color…

The ones I have from my grey interior are also more tan in color. I think it's either due to aging of the plastic, or a slightly different color from the factory. They are the correct pieces. The oak interior ones I have are a different shade.

If you're that OCD about the color, you may be able to get someone to 3d print some new ones.

SEM 15183 isn't a perfect match, but it's way better than the badly yellowed look:


You could also try hydrogen peroxide, which is used in the retro gaming and computer community to restore yellowed plastic to its original color:
