    ok guys i know this sounds dumb but i have been racking my brain for like 2 months on this one
    my 1986 blazer is in the body shop as of 2 days ago starting to be rebuilt so i can put my lift and drive train under it for a daily driver leving my 76 to really build for off road
    my prob is this
    my 1986 has a tan like interior and was originally 2 tone tan and brown, once i get the body work donw and cowl hood and billet grill and stuff in it, money is about gone so i cant redo my interior(which is in really great shape) so i need to know what color i should paint it
    i know this seems petty but i would like some advise
    what would look good thats my question
    here is a pic of the interior color, please help me

    -<font color="white">white</font>-
    <font color="red">red</font>
    <font color="blue">blue metalic</font>

    Red Black or Brown would go best.

    Gloss black or flat black, depends on how you want the trail pinstripping to show up. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    The right color of green would look good IMO ---i.e. a dark or Hunter green /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gifThink of how tan and this green work together in camo

    Black with a red insert looks sharp and came from the factory in 86. I'm biased though because that's my favorite paint scheme- I wish I had found a truck that color when I bought my truck.

    FWIW, my 83 pickup has the exact same interior as yours and is painted metallic medium brown with the tan insert. It looks sharp. I'll try and dig up a pic for you........

    I found a pic of my pickup from last year when I was part of the volunteer mosquito control program out at my rec property. The thingamajig in the back of the truck is a fogger.

    I would say Deep green or Red would look the best. Probably a forest green though.

    All I have to say is that black is the most overly done color on the planet. That is the ONLY way you can make your vehicle as common as a Honda Civic..go with a black interior. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I'm a bit of a purist (actually a lot) so I've yet to see an interior color that WASN'T factory that I thought looked nice. All of them end up being too gaudy for my taste, either it's too much of the same color (black vehicle with black interior) or too bright (green, yellow, you name it).

    As much as I dislike black interiors, I think a combo of the factory black and gray is nice looking depending on exterior color...gray panels, dash, seats etc., with black carpet. This is just personal preference though, do what makes you happy, because you'll have a hard time finding someone that likes exactly what you like.

    This one had a tan interior. Now it has donated its organs to another blazer.

    I had an '85 CJ-7 I did a spring-over on w/40's. It had a Saddle color interior. Ended up with a Teal (blue) body &amp; painted the hardtop close to interior. Even color-matched the wheels to the top. Looked better than it sounds. Whatever color you pick....be sure it's one (or more) that YOU like.

    There are dyes you can get to change the color. It's always easier to go darker. So depending on what color you paint the truck, .... well, you know.

    My 84 Jimmy has the same interior and is a two tone tan and whit. The 79 has brown interior and it is a two tone black/tan. I am doing the interior in it gray. Bought some seat covers and going to rattle can the dash and anything that can be painted with it. Carpet kit is a few hundred but it will change the color. Hope gray goes good with a camo paint job /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Good lUck, you have my vote for Orange. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
