Interior / Exterior 2 tone ?

I plan on a different interior color than exterior, anybody that has done that where did you split the colors? Any pics?

Check out my build. I did a brown/tan interior and green exterior.

Re: Interior / Exterior 2 tone ?

You probably already know, but OEM interior was two-tone grey for many Chevys regardless of exterior color. I opted to follow GM's interior color scheme with a few minor changes, adding dark grey fabric visors and a matching seat with light grey vinyl accents.

This is an example of OEM:


Lotsa cool interior pictures available from a google search:

This build takes "different color interior" much farther than most:

Spec manual shows that green exterior trucks came with light green/charcoal dash combo, all others beige/charcoal.
