Interior Customizing Project..

Well, I've started on the long road to making my ride's interior custom. I already painted the speaker covers behind my seat, while I was back there I also decided to just take the seats out and put in 2 bucket seats. So right now I'm running with only one seat until I get my another bucket. So the next order of business is to get some color in the door panel. So to start everything off right, I decided to go smooth on the door and paint em red. Here are some pics: Name:  100_0181.jpg

so when you sanded, did you sand it smooth? cause no offense, i tried it myself, those panels look like crap after some sanding if the texture is still there

Yea I sanded it smooth to begin with and I am wet sanding in between the coats just to make sure I get all the imperfections that the paint shows.

Yes and Yes. I'm still debating on what to do to those areas. I think it would look pretty cool to leave them the same color because it would give it a little bit of contrast from bright red to reserved beige.

I sanded mine smooth and put a heavy coat of sandable primer on it. I have a place that can mix me up sonic blue paint in a can...but I really would like to do flames as I really like flames on the interior.

O yeah, good work on the project lol

Ya know...I thought about that, and then I talked with my dad and he said that he thought it would look better leaving it black because it would break up the redness and give it more of a contrast.

That looks awesome! I say leave it just the way it is. It matches the outside perfectly!

yeah it looks good like how it is now. i was just thinkin the red with the tan reminded me of a hot rod or somethin like that, figured everything tan and red would look good. keeping the black looks good too, so good choice either way!
