Default Two-Toned My Door Panels

My Monte had light gray interior, which I really dislike. I was lucky enough to find an entire black interior (other than seats) from a wrecked SS. I was working on replacing my door panels with the black ones today and I decided to two-tone the panels in order to be a little different. I think it looks pretty cool. I think I am going to replace all the plastic panels with the black, and my seats for black ones, but leave the light gray headliner and carpet. My console is black on the top and light gray on the bottom, so I think it will all tie together nicely.

I got every plastic piece of the interior including the door panels, headliner with dic, gauge cluster, and dash radio and gauge bezel all for $100. I also found a set of all 3 seats in black for $150.

Nice, not bad at all, that's about how much I'm hoping to spend give or take $50

Looks good - I don't know how well I like the all black though - I'm glad mines semi two-tone. But for the all black versions it would have been nice for GM to make a black headliner and make one of higher quality - my truck is all black with a tan headliner that's coming undone. My Fusion is really good quality and matches the interior.

With that said I've got a decent interior mod planned for myself, too.

I actually didn't paint any of it. I just used the light gray pieces from my original interior and the black pieces that I got from the wrecked SS.
