Need some input on this project, mainly on the interior color. I am tired of doing almost every interior in black or partly black. Right now, the interior of this car is tan. . . Here is a pic of the car straight out of the box. Those are some b*tt ugly wheels right there. . .

if you want to stick with your swaped rims.. itll be better if the wheels can go under the guards (tuck in properly) so they dont stick out.

just a 2nd opinion :)

Yeah, I'd like to tuck them in, only a couple problems with that. A: I'll have to chop some off the brake discs, and B: I would have to trim the mounting shaft on the wheels. I haven't figured out a good way to do that yet. I've already cut them off even with the edge of the rim. . . I need another 1/8 to a 1/4 of an inch to get them inside the fender well. . .

Hmmm...I agree the stock wheels are kinda boring, but I'm just not a fan of the huge wheel/rubber band tire look. As for the interior, it might not look bad in dark brown or butterscotch (or maybe a combination of the two), or better yet, light grey (a sort of cement color).

Yes - in my opinion the 1:24 wheels look the best. Not too big, but more agressive than the originals.

As for the interior have you considered maroon/dark red seats and door inserts, with gray trim (dashboard, centre console, etc).

:cheers
