    Matching console or not

    I have just bought this steering wheel



    I've been slowly spraying a spare center console and currently at the stage of filler primered and all smooth ready for paint

    It's all going in a siver van with blue calipers so silver and blue is the theme but I'm unsure what colour to spray the console, silver, blue, something different or not bother

    Any suggestions welcome

    Dan

    Scotty's is Europa, would be the best colour for console IMO. Arden blue would look odd as too light.

    just to try and help (hope owners don't mind) I found some to look at:

    redhot panthers


    and scootyboys


    tbh I like silver but just think the steering wheel would look odd with nothing to match, so what makes me think blue

    decisions, decisions

    I voted other...I think black, or some other dark shade. I dont like silver, it highlights the crappy heater controls. Obviously doesnt matter if you have climate control.

    I'm tempted to go blue myself, but it doesn't quite look right IMO.

    How about gun metal?

    that also crossed my mind, sort of grey but metalic
