Interior Advice?

I have a silver and black cobalt lt. the interior is tan with wood grain trim. i love the idea of painting the trim but im not sure what would look good with a tan interior besides the wood grain. i was thinking about painting it either silver or black but not sure how that would look with the tan interior...Ideas anyone?

Thanks! I was thinking black but i wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas or if black would even look good with a tan interior.

I was between white and purple when I painted my trim (I had tan + woodgrain like you). I went with white but I think purple would have looked alright too. Just food for thought.

krazedkitty, could you post pics of your interior? i've always seen pictures of interiors fixed up with the black interiors but never with the tan interior. Thanks in advance!

Sure





I painted everything woodgrain white + the dash bezel. I was very happy to get rid of the woodgrain, lol.

I really do like that. It makes the inside look a lot better than the wood grain did. Thanks

No problem! The tan is a tough color to work with but I'm glad I painted mine. I have a feeling you will too. The woodgrain just makes it feel 'old'.
