So, I got the part I wanted painted white. Looks pretty good, now I need to ra paint the vents and part that curves above the steering wheel. I'm thinking black because it'* safer than trying to get it the same grey as it was originally. Whatcha guys think?




So far, I think it looks good, esp. with the grey interior....

That'll be a unique look. I'd do all the trim parts. You already mentioned over the dash, but don't forget around the light switch, the cig lighter, and maybe even the center console....

Brightens it right up
I'd go black on the vents, maybe metalic black even?

see, I'm wary of doing that because I don't want to keep it subtle yet unique, not so much that it'* ricey looking

Definitely go with a half-tone on the other parts to prevent a stark contrast.

Much better than the 92 woodgrain. And the beauty of it is that he can repaint it any time.
