Painted some pillars, opinions please...
 
Let me start off by saying, I am on the fence on this so far. However, I am not redoing it, I kinda can't. I definitely have a silver and black theme developing around my car. The shift knob, the door panels, the radio bezel, and the aluminum gauge bezel I am getting for the cluster....little touches. I tried to darken the interior by painting the A,B,C pillars, oh [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]* handles, and the little ring around the dome light black. Once I got it all back in I wasn't quite sold.

I didnt paint the part around the seatbelt height adjust because the paint would get shear right off the first time it was adjusted. Also, I need to get/do something to the visors to make it match, but I don't know what. I heard that paint and dye flake off that material cause it is so flexible.

I like it. Maybe you could dye the headliner black.

i've wondered how difficult this would be...i've got the black interior but would love to paint all that grey stuff and maybe get a black headliner...sometime way into the future, lol.

anyways, looks good. two thumbs up. pics aren't the best quality (camera phone?) but just from what u posted, i like it.

I have seen magazines and shows on tv where they replace the whole headliner with some other material of your choosing. Any color, just spray adhere it to the ceiling after you rip out the old one.

I like! Said above, it's subtle... I always cringe a bit when I see the "painted interior" threads, I'm not into that fluorescent green and yellow[:D]
Yours does look like the way it should have came from the factory.
