Looks good man. It changes the car. I loved doing my inside painting. My .02 about the silver around the steering wheel would be: just don't do it. I don't think it would look right at all. If it was me I would paint the center A/C and radio surround the same silver as the vents. I like your other ideas. Keep up the good work. What other plans do you have? Are you making a 'showcus' or trying to go fast?

will have to second about not doing the steering column (though I'm always curious to see what it'd look like....) but looks like the rest is exactly the same as I wanna do. You're gonna leave the same headliner and the top half of the pillars and oh-shit handles the same color, right?

edit: you haven't heard of any kinda paint or dye available to put on the seats, have you? cause I was thinking about doing the same scheme as you, like I said earlier, only the bottom half would be dark gray, as well as the center design on the seats...... then the sides of the seats black as well [:)]

i guess i'll be the third to say it...but please...don't do the steering wheel column lol it'll be overkill. or at least that's my opinion. it'll clash, big time. and i'll second the idea of the center bezel, it'd match everything else in silver.

otherwise, looks like you're doing pretty well and i'm actually quite surprised that it still flows well with the lighter interior. looking great.

there is some stuff like that i'll have to track it down for you all but i hear it doesn't work real great.. it's basically like brushing paint into fabric.. it can be blotchy if not done perfect

WELL........I found something, but holy shit they're 23 bucks per can! and they recommend 6-12 cans for an interior :O

edit: WOW.....so if we were to take the max amount of recommended cans, it would be $276 before shipping :O but maybe it is the best......

very nice, it looks nice! gives it a nice custom touch but nothing to over the top. i was also thinking about doing something similar to my car, but in red to match the paint.

in addition to what you already have done, i was thinking of painting the plastic surround that surrounds the radio and heat/ac controls.

ya fo sho. Im going to do that. But it was already pretty close to silver so i was just going to leave it intell i got some more paint. That things is going to be the hardest to do because it already has paint on it. all the other stuff i didnt even have to sand down and the paint stuck perfectly. So when i take out the stereo bezel ill probally have to sand it down a little bit.


and levin. i gave u a rep =) ur always answering my question or posting on my threads and i really appreciate it. and ur posts are always helpful. Thanks bro really appreciate it


Im kinda worried now. i figured out i forgot to clear coat everything =/ i really hope it doesnt start peeling[?|]

I love it! It looks good. not too "out there" but just enough to make a difference. Nice work. I plan on doing something similar to mine as well.
