Default Changing steering wheel colour

I was at the junk yard the other day and I found a 91 grand prix that had an identical steering wheel to mine, but it was black instead of grey. I also want to change the shifter to a black grand prix one. How do you think the black wheel and shifter would look against my grey interior?

I don't think that there'* enough black in the interior of the car to make it look like it belongs. Photoshop it... then we can tell.

You could be right about that. Im concerned about it standing out too much. I saw a 92 ssei with black leather seats in the junk yard...

I have grey interior and I put in a black sunroof shade and trim and I love it, you notice more of the black accents once its in.

I think that it would look good-
I have lots of black accents in my interior. Headliner, fabric on the centre console, and on the rear panels that have the lights on them. Also painted the glove box. The black spread out the over used tan in the interior, and it turned out really good. I still miss the grey.....
Those SSEi seats would look really good....
(sorry AL7'*)
