Thumbs up Painted accents in the Trans am

I was tired of the boring all black interior of my TA and wanted something to offset. I think the aluminum color accents well and makes the car much more appealing to the eye when getting in, the a/c ***** are painted as well. Also, did white face gauges that glow blue since my car is white with blue accents.

I used 320 grit lightly scuffed her up til there were no shiny spots, cleaned up with alcohol then sprayed several coats. I didn't use a clear since it would dull the finish that I was going for but believe me, it's not gonna wear off. Didn't even need to color sand, but if you do the ***** the headlight **** is has a rubber coat so I did clear that one - not shown in picture.

Idk i've seen so many that are done poorly that it's not too appealing to me, maybe if i saw it in person.. I feel ya about the all black getting old though, it does spice it up
