Did you check the fluid once it warmed up. You should always check and refill the transmission when hot, not cold. It normally takes the torque converter time to completely fill once it's dry.

Do you have red and white vinyl or red leather. I've found that SEM Portola red is too light compared to the factory red leather interior. SEM Firethorn red is a closer match.
