Throw Back interior thoughts

So I'm trying to pull off a little bit of a throw back / 356 look with the Boxster. This week I threw in a red interior to replace my worn out gray interior and I dyed the carpet charcoal (which I'm still working on). I love the colored dash look, like the 356's had, I started with white which I think looks...OK and I have Porsche Ocean blue which I'm going to try next. What do you think, blue or white interior accidents. Or have I just completely missed the boat.

Look I'm going for


Interior in progress



Outside of the car thats picking up the white accents

Not nearly as hard as black wheels actually! I'm terrible about cleaning the car in general though so they normally look terrible

IMO progress looks good. I like the white interior pieces. With that, I think chrome or silver accents would be good on small pieces like interior door handles & the shift knob.

I would go with the following design (that is actually what I am going to do with my interior re-design):

I am going down the same retro path:
The original

The retro preview (lower part needs to be stripped and repainted still)

Interesting, I like it! I never would have thought of that. The trim piece should make that doable without too much work.

It's a little too eclectic for my taste, but I think the "Boxster red" interior is throwing me off a little. Is there any way I can get you to take a better shot of the gauge pod? I considered painting the face of the gauge pod white also and would like to see it straight on.

Thanks!

Interior change

I have a 2000 Boxster and the interior has been sun damaged and peeling badly. I would love to know how you did this.
