About to Start Modding!

Whats up guys?

Now that I've had by cobalt for a few months, i'm ready to start modding it. Here's my vision: My car is slate metallic, and i want my theme to be dark gray(slate metallic actually) black and small amount of red. I want mostly all black interior, black rims smoked tail lights and headights, and balck and red bowties. Well theres a lot more, but thats a good start lol. Tomorrow i'm getting started with the interior and i have few questions.

What color krylon fusion or whatever paint do you guys use to match the ebony interior vinyl?

I want to paint the small circular grilles red, do they just pop out or do i gotta take the dash off?

What do you guys recomend doing for the door fabric and headliner?

Thanks for your time everyone!
Mike

Yes, vents. Sorry, I've never tried to remove mine though, so I don't know if they're held in by anything. I wouldn't think so, but you never know.

I'm pretty sure the vents are molded to the dash... so you have to take out the dash to paint 'em.
