Green interior peices...

ok so everyone has seen when people paint their door handles and bazels and what not, but they are usualy bright colors like blue, yellow or red...

being as i have a green truck id like to color match my peices but i jsut dunno how it would look because it would be a darker green to match my shade of green on the outside...

anyone ever see a green match interior or have a photos of it?

i was thinking about a hunter green or maybe something a little darker if i can find it..

I did it to my old radio bezel. I dont know if i have any pics of it, but it looked nice and i was gonna do it to this radio bezel and cluster suround and door accents, but i just dont really have the time to get to it. The green looks dang sharp when color matched...BTW do you have the tan or the grey interior...I have the grey and it looked nice but i imagine that it would look like 50 times better on the tan interior, IMO

I agree, i think that green with tan interior would look really good! of course it would look good with the gray interior as well...but it would look really good with the tan.

yea i have a tan interior...i might just wing it with the door pulls and see how it turns out.. if not i can jsut take some paint thinner to it and scrub them a little and hopefully it will come off...

i would have wayne get me some but it would have to be custom mixed becasue ford used my color for like 3 years so theres not alot of options out there... so id rather just get a 3$ rattle can...

i had a mix of the green for a 99 ranger when i had my truck because i had to get the fender painted. If i still had that i'd give it to you and you could spray it on.

If i had a tan interior, i would paint the entire interior black. But that's just me. By the looks of the pics above me i would say go for it. Before i saw those pics though i would have told you not to.

Wow! You did that paint job with a spray can? CRAZY!

Does that spray come in Cayman green? My Ranger is a 97 with that crazy green/aqua color. I need to paint a fender and header too. Looks great!

I got the paint at walmart. It is green pearl. It is not a perfect match but it is as close as I could get it without ordering paint from somewhere expensive.
