Hi I have an au2 interior that is gray instead of black. I actually went to a wrecking yard today they offered an entire au2 black interior for $450 but in all the cars the interior's where missing bits hence my car would loook retarded. What im wondering is I would like to get my interor converted to black but can I just take it to a shop to get painted on? What im worried about is like the white writing on the headlight switches and white dots on the air vents wont they be covered then?

I now have no idea what I should do :(

Yah but FTG are fairly expensive for interiors :( They wanted around $1500 for a stock forte one. Im thinking of picking up all the parts I can cheap from the wrecker going broke and sourcing the rest from maybe ftg or another wrecking yard.

it would be way too hard, and probably cheaper to just upgrade to a BA considering the wiring and s**t on the ICC.. then the instrument cluster.. and all the stuff to do with the engine.. :shock:
