    Painted my radio trim

    ok well i've been wanting to do some stuff to spruce up the interior of my car. I got to messing with stuff today and ended up color matching the radio trim to my cars paint, im gonna do the a/c trim and maybe the trim around the cluster gauges too. I really like how the radio trim turned out, wat do you think?

    oh i also painted the inside a/c vent thing, im not sure if you can see it in the pic.

    Colormatched like you did, pewter metallic. I did the radio bezel, the speedo bezel and the 2 a/c bezels. That was enough for me. I have pics somewhere

    what if it was just done in gloss black? lightly sand the trim pieces, primer them, wet/sand, and then them paint black and clear coat. i think on any camaro it would look good in black. i chose to sand mine down a little because i wanted to give it a smooth almost polished look/feel. I'll take pics of mine on the car today.

    I really like the carbon fiber look.

    But, white would be a lot cheaper

    Same here, just seems like too big a contrast. And black looks funny with a grey interior for me.

    Yeah they would be eye catching.. But say covered in white sued leather or plain white leather may be nicer than just painting them... I want mine white leather top to bottom actually.. I want just about every inch of her inside done in white leather, or maybe a mixture of plain leather in white and sued in white too.. EVen the floor..

    In b4 da edit lol. Cool tho some like custom inside some don't all good. My lumina has a much nicer (less cheap looking) interior than the Camaro I would'nt change it tho.. I have always hated the cheap feel of Camaro's inside. As far back as my 3rd gens too.. TOOOO much plastic imho..
