Same, not a red or chrome guy. Looks like he did a good job though...
I think we were separated at birth.

I too changed my interior from all black to a factory mod red setup. I’d really like to have red carpet too but that will have to wait until I really “need” carpet. Good job on your part!

I like the mod and maybe it's just the pics but to me none of the colors match each other.

Always good to make changes. You can get the console hydro dipped.

So I’m waiting for my doors from Apsis this week. Working on my speaker grills. A forum member was very nice to give me a set of black speaker grills. So now I’m painting them torch Red to match my doors. Just had to order another can of paint from amazon. I thought the one can would be enough. I’m liking how they are coming out. They already almost match. Want to hit them some more with paint.
