    I have some ideas for the interior color of my sedan. It us midnight blue on the outside. Looking at red, burgundy, dark gray, or navy interior colors. Also maybe a red and black two tone. I need some opinions on what to choose. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1415317987.031443.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1415318017.815410.jpg

  2. I say go with a light color, I just don't think red and black goes with your paint. Navy is just too much blue.

    I am going through the same thing, I used scratch paper and crayons once I picked my colors.

  5. Dark dark blue outside -
    Any blue, Lt blue, silvers or greys, white, off whites, tan,

    Keep reds to minimum as in piping pinstripes or belts.

    I'm with tan. Mohair or some kind of fabric like that would look nice in the big sedan as opposed to vinyl pleats although I could see that working too if you do it just right.

    I feel like any shade of blue is going to look too monochromatic 80's and red interior in a blue car would just be odd.
  7. Red and White old style rolled and pleats like this only red & white.

  8. I know it's not in your list of colours but off white would look great next to that dark blue IMO.

    I like cream (or tan) with some medium brown distressed leather... maybe a 3rd using some type of pattern with some tan/dark blue in it.

    I can thinking about color combinations all day, good luck

    I'm liking the cream or silver/ gray. Maybe the silver mixed with some navy. I really like the style of the Austin speed shop free sedan

    Distressed Brown Or Beige like an old bomber Jacket.
  12. The color Chevrolet called "saddle" would look good, sort of a whiskey color. Or light blue in my opinion. I think lighter colors would look better with such a dark exterior.
  13. Midnight blue and parchment ( off white) is a classic combo

    Buckskin would look luxurious with the midnight blue.
