interior ideas

Guys i Need some help. Im trying to figure out which way to go with my interior. Im debating on a black dash but then i dont know what color to go with the trim. I like black and white but im afraid of it clashing too much with the outside color for the future. It will either be black cherry or a real deep burgundy. Any input would be great! A few pics

If you did a black dash would you do the door panels black as well?

i personally would take them and have them wrapped. i have done my dash, door panels and pillars. it's in vinyl, so it looks factory, but a different color. went from light grey to charcoal.

dash: you can see how close it is to the factory charcoal.

yea its a good idea also. I might just paint the panels and trim and then wrap the dash to keep it to look factory. Because the dash is vinyl i could just dye it black. I just want it to stay clean looking and even.

im trying to do something that is inexpensive. How much do you think wrapping a dash would cost?

well, you will need to remove the dash from the truck. the wrapping part isn't that hard to time consuming, but you need to know what you are doing.

but if you plan to dye and want to do it right, you really need to pull the dash there as well. sure i can be done in the truck, but it would be easier to get it out.

if i were to wrap a dash for someone, and they brought it to me out of the truck, i would prob charge around $100 bucks.

hmm well i wish you were closer lol. Yea either way painting or whatever i do, i would pull it. Im not nervous about taking it out as long as u pay attention to what ur doing it can. i need to go get some prices in town on getting it wrapped.
