Adding color accents to my interior

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if you guys had tips for adding color accents to my interior on my zx3. What is the best way to add the color? Would it be to paint certain parts individually, although that would be more time consuming? Or is there somewhere that you can buy pre-painted pieces to add to the car?

The exterior is yellow so I was thinking of doing yellow accents but I don't know quite yet. Would the yellow look good among a black and grey interior.

Thanks.

You can also get color vinyl film that can be heated and is extremely malleable and won't permanently color your pieces.

IMO i wouldnt do the yellow accents inside.. but yeh its fairly easy to take all the pieces out and spray paint em.. make sure you get paint that is appropiate for the vents.. given that heat and cold come out..

My car is white, and it has silver leather seats, and mostly silver/gray interior trim. I too wanted some color inside the car. So I painted the vent bezels, added a red/black steering wheel cover, and installed a set of red/black seat covers from Advance Auto. I think the seat covers made the biggest difference.....

I would suggest sanding, I lightly sanded mine and they came out great, I have some buddies who just popped them out, painted, and stuck them back in and the bubbled and peeled. Better to spend a little extra time in the beginning.
