    Help with my interior/console please :)

    the other day i re did my door cards so that they were red
    but this has left me with a bit of a tough call to make!

    for ages i have had a spare centre console all pretty much done in red to match the car but never fitted it (altho i have the obd cover and gear surround in)

    but now i have done the doors im not sure if a red centre console would make it too red inside?

    need a little help please

    heres a pic


    was wonderin, should i paint it gloss black instead?
    maybe trim it in same stuff as me door cards?
    just fit it? (after i lacquer it)
    paint the top bit black?

    HELP!

    Mate it looks like you have done a very good job on those door cards, do you do that for a living?? I would put the red console in goes well with the red theme without going over the top!!!

    It looks like your seats are black? In which case keep the centre console red otherwise the door cards will look a bit out of place.

    Well keep up the good work mate they look alot better than some so called professional trims i have seen and some amateurs who claim to have done a really good job, id be more than happy with what i can see!!!! Stick the console in and leave it for a few weeks i always find if you can get in your car and like it its best to stick with it but if you get in and are not sure its time for a change!!!
