To those w/ Black trucks.. what color int?

Ok, I've done a couple mods to my interior such as o/head console, and full lenght floor console. My truck is black on the outside, but I just cant seem to even find a color that sounds good right now. So, for all you who have black trucks, what color did you guys choose?

Left mine stock.

Awhile back, I painted my friend's Civic's interior. It looked cool as **** until it started to peel and chip. Nothing I want to mess with. Even when done profesionally, it still looks cheap to me.

OHC is the only thing I would do, but I wouldnt paint it.

Light gray interior. Certain pieces painted with Duplicolor. I can't remember the color name but it's blue with flakes in it and it acts sorts like chameleon paint. I love it

Honestly, I dont remember. Its been atleast 6 years ago. I remember it was bought from Autozone. It may have been Krylon (spelling?). I know it was clear coated too.

It lasted about 8 months. He used to use stuff to shine up his interior all the time, so i think it eventually started making it peel. If he didnt clean it all the time with stuff, it may have lasted longer. The pieces on the doors were chipping from people's arms and legs hitting them. Also peeled from being cleaned.

well, i dont have a black truck.... but i do have my ENTIRE interior painted. It was dark gray from the factory, and I changed everything to black with silver accents. I even got new black carpet and had the headliner and visors reupholstered in black twill.

So far, its holding up great, but i'm really careful. I have limo tinting all around to keep it protected from the sun, and I use a sunshade in my windshield when i leave my truck out in the sun for extended periods of time. As for cleaning it, I dont use anything but a damp rag.

i'vd got a black truck with the gray/black interior.. i've come to the decision to keep it gray and black, but instead, recover some pieces in black suede to break up the interior somewhat to make it different, yet, still appear to look stock. i'm going to recover the headliner, parts of the door panels(that preferated vinyl near the door lock, and the bottom trim piece that goes along the bottom of the door, around the pocket), the passenger airbag cover, and parts of my center console and sub box (once they're built).

I currently have light grey interior except for the OHC and dash. I am converting everything to the dark grey interior. IMO the dark grey is the best looking other than the rare black which i think only came in FX4's....
