Getting bored with my interior...

My 03 SVT is nice, but completely stock. i'm looking to make some changes on the inside of the car.
Are there any inside panels available that aren't grey? i'd like to change the color, but painting all of that really seems like it's going to be a LARGE pain...

painting it is really not a lot of work. but it usually looks bad. the corner vents and door handle bezels rub off on the opposite panel when closing the door so often, especially when it's hot out.

The SEM paint works very well. Doesn't get tacky to the touch no matter how hot it gets. Just got to do multiple coats. Prep work is very important as well. I am about o try some plastidip out on a small piece or two to see how it does.

i tried plastidip on the oval vents and little handle covers. one handle got a small cut in it within days, and started peeling away. and the vents, somehow started peeling in one place. i don't recommend it. lol

Got some 3M cf wrap on a few interior pieces. Been on for about 4 months in the Texas heat with no issues.

SEM paint is great and it's easy to work with, I used it on my HVAC and vent surrounds. I don't know what you're wanting paint, but they have products for painting an interior right. Might not be cheap though.

I plasidipped my handle covers and they have been holding up fine for nine months. I depends on how many coats you do. It's the only plastidipped thing in my car.
