i decided to colour code my interior and seeing as my car is red i painted the dash red and black.

ive almost finished, i just need to spray the top part of the dash black.

sorry about the crappy quality, pics were taken with my phone.

Good to see some new ideas for interiors. I give the effort a double thumbs up, looks like you took your time and did it properly (which always means a good end result and quality).
