Ok so next weekend I'm going to do something with the dash trim in my SS. I have a few options and I just want a few opinions on them.

1. Color match the trim to the car, imperial blue.
2. Vinyl wrap the trim with plain vinyl basically any color, either white or blue.
3. Vinyl wrap the trim with 3D carbon fiber vinyl, basically any color. I'm thinking dark blue.

Any thoughts?

JMO, but color matching to an accent color with vehicle is my choice. Sometimes owners get a tad flashy with bright colors, or simply don't know how to color match. Good luck with your project and post pics so we can see your work/effort.

I color matched my LS trim. I think I might color match it. I'm going to color match a set of Gen 1 projectors, so I might just get some extra imperial blue paint, and do the trim as well.

Lol I want to Color match my trim to silver metallic but I dont want to paint them because I got a feeling I would f them up. If anyone wants to do them for me that would be nice lol
I've painted about 4 sets, it's really not hard.... and if you mess up, you let it dry sand it, and re do it.

I can paint it for you, if you cover paint and shipping plus a few bucks.

too bad I live in Canada and shipping anything is so expensive over the boarder lol. I'm thinking about either skinning my trim in real CF with white/black weave or getting color matched paint/high gloss automotive clear coat and running it through my HPLV gun.

but out of those options you posted VIPER I'd def. paint it.

Do you mean HVLP gun? LOL I'm an aviation mechanic. I basically work on sheet metal, hydraulics, tires, breaks, and painting. Any time I need to paint anything I take it to work. I going to paint it, I'll be picking up some paint this week and possibly starting my headlights this weekend.

I'm thinking blue, but we'll see when I get them apart what I can really do with them.
