OK, as many of you know, I am in process of two-toning my interior (swapping ebony pieces for pewter). I was lucky enough to find a pewter Monte at the salvage yard recently and pull some extra pieces. I'm not sure I'm sold on the look if I use these pieces.

So I am curious what others think. I have two pics I am tossed between BUT I will show everyone ALL of them to be fair (without saying what direction I think I lean on. So, here we go.

#1 - Current Look (none of the new parts)


#2 - Adding the power window pod


#3 - Adding the power window pod and speaker grill (please ignore the electrical tape, was used to mock up the pic).


#4 - Adding the speaker grill (please ignore the electrical tape, was used to mock up the pic).

I kind of like it all on there.

I really like the speaker at the very least.

I like the 4th choice. Door handel and speaker only. It looks a little too busy with all three.

So far I don't think this pole needs to go to the end. Pic #4 is the one I lean on (or stick with pic #1, what I already have). I agree the window switch pod makes it look too busy.

My concern changing the speaker grills are unlike my other changes, this is more "permanent" as the grills are fused to the door panel (you grind out the plastic fuse/weld points, and use a two part epoxy to re-apply the new piece). I did it with an air vent on my dash, I can CERTAINLY do it to a door panel.
