Door handles match the dark sections of the seats and seat belt colour.

If centre console you wish to do, think to match the dash pad will have to be dark also.


as in centre console , i mean the shift surround, power window switches ect..
aswell as stereo facia, trip comp/heater control and cluster facia..
as you may remember std ea-ed dash plastics are a flat black, i originally painted them grey as 90% of the interior was grey on grey, now there is some black in the picture im thinking back to black, except high gloss instead of flat...????


I was thinking of doing piano black on the normally matt black sections of the fascia/console. I reckon it'd look pretty mad.

Correction

Carbon fibre look. Lol

Piano black does look. But will it stand out too much and make the rest of the dash parts etc look incomplete as they are a matt look. Know what i mean?

I would do a charcoal grey or a dark gun metal grey color to coordinate with what you already have and blend in instead of standing out

Or going back to standard

Man lots of options.

Que the music.........."Back in Black!!!!!!" lol.

I reckon the door handles look good, but what to do about the back seat? It needs some work to go with the new interior look.

I go satin black personally.
I reckon piano black always looks cheesy in an interior. Personal preference but.

this afternoons task was to re paint the rubber door strips to match the front bar..
time to tidy a few thing up for its moment of glory before its demise. :wink: .

after a scuff, a clean, a few coats of plastic primer, a coat of paint and lastly some clear, its starting to look better..
i still got to do the rear door and the doors on the other side..

Moment of glory? Heading where I think its heading?
Demise? Does it have anything to do with a text I sent you the other day?
Criptic? Makes perfect sence to me.
