    Feeling the nees to spruce things up a bit.

    I have an 01 Firebird. And as we all know the inreriors are leaving a little to be desired in the looks department. I have a black car with all black interior. 5% window tint all around. Basically as dark as I can possibly get. But using red as my accent color, any recommendations on painting bezels (interior or outside badging), nice leather seat covers, or cool inrerior mods I can perform? This is my first run on this forum so pop please be gentle. haha

    I feel your pain. My interior needs a few things (no ashtray, coin holder, cigarette lighter or floormats). My sunvisors are dog-eared, and my crash pad (dash panel) is cracked something fierce. Also want to replace all the speakers. Uggghhhh.............

    Well imo if you were going with new speakers, I'd make sure to get at least 2 speakers as '3 ways' with built in tweeters. It really produces a high quality treble in the car without the difficulty and expense of getting tweeters seperately.

    Actually, already have JL Audio tweeters in each door. Currently, however, they don't work. Need to figure out why.

    They were already in the car when I bought it.

    I recommend painting the switch trim panels and the brake vents as well as the hood vents. I have done this and it looks great, although I am now switching my color scheme. Here is a sample of what I have done:




    I also would get seats re-upholstered with newer leather or vinyl. I plan on doing that too but down the road as well as having everything leather wrapped for a more refined look.

    What kind of paint type did you use for the switch bezel ? And how did you get the pontiac painted on the eyelid? I have thought about painting the side vents but was unsure.

    I used automotive paint from Automotivetouchup,which I matched to viper snakeskin green with an acrylic clear gloss coat. The pontiac word was a decal and not paint.
