You did a fantastic job on your interior!Recovered a set of 80's VW recaros. Found similar material and recovered the door panel inserts to match.
Ordered leather trim from redlinegoods.com and did the shifter, parking bracke, center console lid and door armrests in black leather. I bought a leather trim panel for the dash pad, but have yet to install that.
Rear sear is a corbeau vinyl rear seat kit. One day in the future i'll recover it to match the fronts, but i have other more important projects i'm working on.
i've seen a red interior car years back with black front and rear seats, and black carpet and it looked awesome although can't recall the headliner and rear quarter panels but i think you're on the right path.I threw a lot of black at my ‘90’s scarlet (porno) interior. Just swapping to black carpet was a huge help in toning down the sea of red. I recovered ‘86/‘86 GT seats and added ‘83 netted halos.
Thanks. The red interior can be a polarizing color today, but it was fairly common back in the day. Scarlet and Canyon Red didn't age well if exposed to the sun, so most of the red interiors out there look pretty rough.i've seen a red interior car years back with black front and rear seats, and black carpet and it looked awesome although can't recall the headliner and rear quarter panels but i think you're on the right path.
we did a set of black corbeau and black oem rear seats in buddies grey interior notch, and it made it look million times better.
There are such great options available today to reupholster seating in Foxes and buy repop interior trim. When I recovered my seats in 2004 Distinctive Industries offered the kit to do 85/86 GT seats in Canyon Red or Grey. Black wasn't an option and there wasn't a coupe back seat kit available either. TMI has really changed the interior game with their offerings, but it looks like Distinctive industries now focuses on the '64.5 to '73 market.Red interior can be made to work. All comes down to the right mix of parts. Adding too much black can actually make it worse. A clean set of seats can make a HUGE difference, especially if you go with black carpet and black headliner.
My car was originally red interior, but i swapped it to black using a parts car i had about 20 years ago. The options of interior customization simply didn't exist at the time.
If mine was still red, i would have gone for a set of red 05+ seats
