Interior Trim Match Car Color

Hey i got a hold of a can of auto paint that is the same as my cobalts exterior color (stealth grey) wich is somewhat of a blue (Iknow, retarted name right?) Anywho i was thinking of painting my interior trim, from that ugly silver, to match the color of my car.. Any opinions on the idea? i noticed almost Nobody on here has done this, and i think it'd look pretty cool

Good idea, most people are either doing black, a regular gray, or another contrasting color. Matching the exterior would work well.

Take your paint code to O Reilly's and they can make up some spray paint for the car. You will need to buy a special sprayer, but they can special make the paint for you.

I've done it. I'd say go for a contrasting color lol. I'm planning on changing mine because I got rather sick of it

yea i like the contrasting/unique color for trim.. it makes it pop a little more.. but depending on the color of your car sometimes color matching looks better. for instance, bright colored cars look better with matching while the neutral blacks and gray colors look better with contrasting.. just my .02 but post pics when done either way!

And yes im actually doing a blacknblue thing with my car. the color really flatters black. Black tails black head black h/u black hvac seatcovers soon etcetc. And surely ill post pics. one of these days ill make a showoff thread before i take my prettywheels off for the winter =(
