diffently a must do it looks amazing you couldn't tell that i painted them the look exactly like the ebony oem ones. as long as you use flat black you will be fine it is worth it rather then spending a s**t load of money on gm parts or waiting around for peices at a junk yard. only 2.50 a can and 2 cans did everything but the door panels and the seat trim peices.

Yeah I know just cant stand that tan color i put a flat clear coat over it I really don't abuse the door and panels that much. so far so good i'm trying o find local junk yard where i can get stuff but its hard finding a junk yard by me. a little off topic here but what is the highest you would pay for ss recaro front and rear seats?

yea i mean i wouldnt paint my kick panels at all because those alone are already filthy after i cleaned them in may. if i was actually going to do it i would buy every single panel ebony. glove box the piece under the steering wheel both kick panels the and the 4 pieces in the back. than id just paint my door panels and figure out something to do with the door insert. but im not going to go that route because if the paint started to chip i would just get pissed off with it. also its hard to find ebony seats around here too so thats another reason y im not doing it i really wish i had power locks or they made black panels with black inserts for doors with crank windows.
