Interior colors? Need pics!

Need some input guys........
I had planned on painting the interior of my COE white, and I really like it on the new dash......but what about the rest of the interior? I'm thinking maybe some other color might look better? I don't want white seats, headliner, etc. Don't really want black either.
The outside of the truck will stay green, and a green interior would be a bit too much green.
Maybe a third color to contrast?

Any body got pics of a custom interior they like?

Also debating painting the steering column white......dunno.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm a big fan of red interiors, yours is great!
In my case it just won't work with the green.
The tan/saddle color could work for the soft parts, goes pretty good with white or green....

Keep 'em coming!

Scott,

With the green exterior and the white dash I think you might be a little limited. Perhaps a light grey, tan or even a darker brown. If you spray the interior surfaces body color there should be plenty of contrast between that, the white dash and whatever color you choose for upholstery

Once I get my steering put back together I'm going to be spraying my interior. I'm going back with the factory color; meadow green.

Bobby

What color green are you using on the exterior? I would think a meadow green shade would still look good in the cab.
I don't think I would like a white steering column.
What about white dash and headliner then the lower half of the cab body color with seats similar to what Chris showed?

Yeah, that's my problem. I really don't want a green dash/interior. I owned too many 70's cars that all seemed to be green everywhere, and I hated them.
My truck was originally white, and I like the dash white. Just don't want too much of that either. The tan color upholstery as a contrast is growing on me.....
I think I will paint the column white though.

Hey Scott,
Here is our basic tan interior for our 1950 - cloth bench seat just to
give you an idea of how it might look.

Tan is a great interior color for a green truck.

Keep the pics coming. I like seeing the different interior combos. Very helpful for us guys that haven't gotten that far and are still contemplating.

I like a gray interior but I think you need to pull the green inside also... some doesn't have to be a lot... door jams, A pillars, leaving the dash white, gray headliner, door panels, carpeting, seats, and steering column. Is what I envision. White paint needs to be washed when touched a lot... that's why I think gray for the steering column.

I'm a huge fan of the color red... I just think red is more manly! But with the green exterior I think you're right that it wouldn't work and would look too Christmas-y. I think you're limited to grey or tan which would be just fine. You don't want to go all white though.
If you twisted my arm, I'd vote for grey.

Just talked to a buddy....he has some nice leather bucket seats I can have. BLACK!!!!!
That throws a wrench into my plan.......suppose I could recover them, but this is a lowbuck build after all.

Decision, decisions.

How about putting a multi-color pinstripe design in the middle of the dash that would incorporate the green and the color of the upholstery you end up using? Or maybe a small painted pinstripe outline of a pickup truck peeling out? vroom!! Jag
