Default Opinion on my idea...

I was thinking of painting some of the interior trim in my car to match the color of the exterior (Sedona Red). Basically, I want to paint the same pieces that the carbon fiber interior installs (that piece around the stereo, the rings around the vents and the area by the door locks). I was thinking of either paining it to match or painting it a darker red so it wouldn't be so obnoxious.

What are your thoughts on this? What recommendations would you have for the paint to use?

I saw a WRX with the carbon fiber interior. While I thought the pattern was lame, I thought it looked much better to have a darker bezel around the stereo.

Also, does anyone know where I can get those pieces that are taken off when the carbon fiber kit is installed? I wanted to see if I could get them somewhere so I wouldn't damage my originals.

well i wouldn't do it, but if you want to do it then enjoy painting the pieces and putting them on.

If it doesn't turn out pretty like you wished it did, i'm sorry. Good luck on painting it if you plan on this

That's why I wanted to use another set of parts. So I could go back to the original if I wanted... I don't want to be stuck commiting to something in case it comes out stoopid.
