Interior overhaul

First off I'm the new guy. So hi. Yes I did do some searching but I couldn't find quite what I was looking for. Anyway.

I have a base 05 Cobalt Sedan. I'm officially out of warranty as of a month ago so I started to tinker with my car

To be frank, I hate the grey interior. Hate it. I want the black one. Now for some reason the top of my dash is black but every other piece of trim is grey.

So I want to do the bottom of the dash, the entire center console, A,B,C pillars, headliner, rear deck lid, seats, door sill covers and doors in black. What would you say the best way is to accomplish this?

I looked around and I can do both the bottom dash and center console with oem parts in ebony for $250 give or take. But since I have a sedan I'm lost when it comes to the door panels, headliner, pillars, door sill covers and seats

Any direction would be very helpful. Thanks in advance

well as far as the fabric goes, please dont paint it(ive seriously seen painted seats and headliner) if you really want black seats and whatnot, maybe check a junkyard for some ss parts you could get cheap. otherwise, you would be looking at re wrapping everything

dont compare this site to css that place is 90 percent crap in my opinion.

hmm... well I have't ventured too far out of the electronics section as far as that goes I had nothing but good experiences. But it's irrelevant. To each his own I guess.

welcome and as far as redoing your interior you have a few options. 1st you can go to the junkyard get most of what you need for a decent price.almost all of the interior pieces just snap out so it is not that hard to do. second you can paint all the plastic pieces with krylon fusion spray paint (made for plastic). As "09cobaltlt" said DO NOT paint any fabric. Just get that stuff from a junkyard. hope that helps steer ya in the right direction
