    Centre console ideas

    Wanting to spray my centre console soon. Base coat is going to be black sapphire (like car). Trying to do a black/red colour scheme so would like to put a design in red on top of base coat. Don't want too much red as i think it will stand out too much for my liking. Have come up with five ideas so far which i have put below.

    1.

    2.

    3.

    4.

    5.


    Let me know which you think is best or if you have any ideas yourself, please feel free to post. Just need to be easy to mask off or make a stencil.

    Thanks

    Sorry but dont like any of them to be honest.

    The worse one is the stripes IMO and the best one is between number 4 and 5.

    griffen outline to the side looks the best i think but maybe it might be a bit toooo much! plane black would look good mate but am into the outline one out of all of them the most tbh mate

    Number 1 or 4 for me, I actually quite like what your doing! It would look mint with my red and black leather seats! I'm not a big fan of painted consoles after seeing the god awfull state of the 888 attempt but I think that if you can get the finnish a nice glossy piano black with a deep red it should look great.

    Maybe a more opaque looking griffin might look better, not so much in your face!

    I'm not too keen on any of these tbh. I think that one colour would look better for the centre console, such as gloss black or red. I think it depends on what other parts of the interior are to be painted red and what parts are to be painted black.

    If it was something along the Linea Rossa theme then that would look great imo.
