I like black with beige, think it looks classy and sporty at the same time actually. Plus, most exterior trim is black too, so you can have a theme going on with it lol. If you've done the color matching test, send me the pics and I'll give ya my opinion on it. Yeah, a friend and I did the red, but I'm going to get it professionally redone very soon. It just isn't quite perfect enough for my tastes, but sticking with the same color scheme.
I was acutallly going to ask what you thought since you know what you're doing with color schemes/design in general. I'll mock it up with some double sided tape or something first and see. Did you do the red yourself?
Awesome! Ya PITA to say the least. I'm gonna count the number of screws in your picture and go from there I suppose. I really like the look of it especially with the black/red, unfortunately I'm rocking the beige on beige so I'll probably go with beige screw covers. Thanks again
Glue doesn't really work at keeping the panels on. Big time PITA trying to do that . I just took the entire door panel off, marked off even spacing around the insert, and drilled through both the insert and door panel. Then put screws with a cover through, and secured it with a nut on the other side. Really simple and effective, and looks pretty sporty and clean from the inside. I got the cover thingies at home depot, just search around till you find something you like. If you have any other questions, shoot me a PM and I'll write up more in detail for you. Hope it helps!
omg I had no idea you responded hah I thought it would notify me with an email. I'm just trying to make sure it doesn't come off. Of course I tried to glue to no avail but it basically is falling apart and I absolutely LOVE what you did with yours. Any details would be smashing.
