you suck!

Ok seriously though, you have a tough color to work with. Obviously with the black interior you can theoretically do any color for the accents and lighting but if you bring the granite color inside to the trims that really creates an issue matching up any lighting you might do. I'm not sure green would look so hot with that color of trim but I don't know. I've never seen it done so who knows.

i really think green lighitng + glue granite will look prety cool, more because blue-granite is more granite-grey, but like you said, bringing the exterior color inside makes it tough, hence this thread :)

sorry bryce, but i dont thinkg orange + blue-granite would look good at all lol

well in my opinion the accent color is the silver. if you color match witht he granite with black interior it will just fade into the background. if you go with a lighter silver that would look great. JMO. it just weird that they did a black interior. but don't go too dark cause then it's not an accent. if you went with an all tan interior i would go with the color match.

I also have the Granite blue and have begun to stock up on the HOUSE OF KOLOR metalic silver... That way I can keep the trim peices in the car silver that are there from the factory. I'm fixin to paint the engine plastic peices and my door panels before the end of feb. I was thinkin a two toned silver and the Granite would also look nice on the exterior of the car. I have blue leds all in the floorboard of the car also. I was incorporating the blue leds under the hood also. And I have them wired for my trunk already.

^^^see ppl, blue, me no want blue like others, me was different, me want green :D

in not really a fan of silver paint unless its on someone els's car :D

i was just thinking....couldnt i make the blue-granite a bit brighter inside by using a white primer? versus grey.

the great thing about paint is that it can be re-done

M4, you could do the blue-granite on the trim, then do the same color but fade it down to a color of your choice. Just dont go to wild with the transition, like blue-granite to neon orange, that would just not look right.

Hey the green lighting should be fine man, that was the first thing I thought of. It seems more like you got your ideas lined out already. Deffinately bring the BG colors inside a bit. Perhaps maybe a fade from black up the sides and end it with the blue granite on the overhead...? leaving blue granite/green/silver trim options... it's up to you though!
