I personally would go with black. It would be a nice subtle contrast. White is another option but it would look extremely bright. It's your car, whatever makes you happy. just use a nice interior car paint with a good clear coat. remember prep is everything.

i would do either black or white. I would use bc/cc paint for the exterior but if you dont know how to use it go with some kind of plastic paint and a plastic clear. he's right the prep is everything, if it aint prepped good its gonna look like ****. so make sure you take ur time.

I would paint it to match the exterior color.

QFT

I have seen some where everything that they could take out, including the vent at the base of the windshield, was painted and IMO it looked ricey as hell.

I'd never seen one done in white before, but that looks pretty good thormxkid.

Here's mine

Sh*t looks good man. I bet keeping them carpet clean are a bi*ch. As for mine, I'm thinking of going gloss black or MAYBE silver (maybe). I'll have enough white in it from the white face inserts.

I think either color would look good....blacks probably a little more suttle...but white looks great.

Here's a pic of what the paint is going to look like, just to give you an idea. I might have to get a better shot later.

The cap gives you a better idea of how it's supposed to look.
