car upholestry

Postby wollie » Sun Aug 06, 2017 11:06 am

I am renewing the seats in a black 1983 bmw.
The color of the car is black.
Me and the person doing the seats have decided
to put on black cloth type material.
The dash and the side panels are also matt black vinyl.
I will not be changing floor carpet as its faded but perfect.
The original material on the seats was a beige type color.

Just wonder if people think here there is too much black going
on here?
Any advise welcome...

My car is almost totally black inside, including the roof lining - even the rear windows are black tinted. The only thing that is not black are the Alcantara seat cushions and seat backs which are dark gray.

I think it looks great, but the car is light silver with black trim so there is plenty of contrast.

Thanks Sid, hopefully i will get a few more replies but your post encouraging.
The only concern i have is the outside of the car also black.
This may be pretty normal but i do not know.
