If you are just looking for a cool appearance, you have a bit more flexibility to be creative.

Either approach has its benefits. The goal is to enhance a classic car interior so you love it and others can’t help notice its awesomeness.

The more involved you get, the more complications you will find.

Since you are dealing with an older car, you will likely encounter rust, crud and dirt.

The interior should be cleaned and prepared if you plan to paint or dye.

Finally, you will encounter different materials such as vinyl, plastic, rubber and metal. Think of precise color matching as an adventure.

At Legendary Auto Interiors, we can help you every step of the way, whether you are restoring a ‘67 Firebird, a ‘71 Camaro or another classic vehicle.

Tips To Enhance a Classic Car Interior Color Scheme

Whether this is your first go around or your tenth, a few tips can make the process go more smoothly.

The following actions can make your life easier:

  • Clean the interior thoroughly
  • Buy extra paint when you get the right color
  • Expect problems and complications
  • Don’t put lacquer over enamel
  • Pay attention to temperature and humidity when applying product
  • Look at the inside of the glove box

When matching the original color of your car’s interior, you can do worse than checking the inside of the glove box.

If you have paint mixed to your specifications, make sure to buy a little extra.

Then you will always have it on hand.

Remember, your restoration might include matching the colors of trim panels, rubber seals, headliners, weather stripping and other interior features.
