Trim color

Ok I have a yellow coupe and want to paint the trim, but am thinking maybe yellow trim will be to much. I am wanting ideas on designs that can break up the yellow I am wanting to do yellow/black/white interior! Any input will be helpful!

Go yellow or black IMO. The yellow wont be too much as long as you keep it under control and not paint every single peice that can be removed from the car easily.

I think it would look sweet to go with a black trim but paint a center line across the car trim yellow! That way you get some yellow with the trim without an overload of yellow. My cobalt for example is blue, so I'm thinking I will get a blue trim and either a black or silver strip across the horizontal trim. Hope that idea sparks something cool!

I dont think it would be too much if you did it in yellow. I have mine done in orange and I love it. I think GM shouldve offered color matched trim as an option. Like cobaltinator said as long as you keep it under control with the yellow it wont look over powering. I would do the trim in yellow. Paint the dash black and then use white for subtle accents.

EDIT:
You could also go with a yellow and black CF look
