Had the best damn idea!

I have a Black Accord 04 Sedan.
I tinted the windows cause the tan inside just isn't my taste.

How much would it cost to change out the seats, carpet, steering wheel, dashboard, and roof to black? Say I go to the junkyard and get all the parts form a totalled silver 03-05 accord ex...

A BLACK ON BLACK SEDAN?
I'm nutting just thiking about it...

I wanted a Black wiht tan interior, but they didn't make it. It was either black on black, red on tan, green on tan, beige on tan. So I went with the beige.

Guess they changed it around for 05

You should ask anyone if they would trade, might be hard but its worth a shot

Which sedans actually have the black interior? Isn't it just the silver?

If so, who would want a silver/tan accord? :X

yep, only silver sedans have a black interior. silver and tan would be nasty...but hey, someone might be into it. i would be fine with the tan if it had a black dash like the coupe instead of a brown dash.

i made sure my interior leather/dash was black when i purchased my silver accord, that was one of my main concerns, i dont'really dig the tan look for a car that i'm going to be modd'n up for a race look. It wont' be cheap to change everything, even @ junk yard. The seats itself are expensive.

For the cost of going stock you could get a katzkin interior. That would take care of the leather and save the hassle of completely replacing the seats. Check on hardtopguy.com, maybe he can give you a deal on the whole interior..... Good luck man.

I definitely feel you on the Luxury thing, but a black on black sedan?
I think that sounds pretty luxurious.

I think that silver trim looks good in black too.



someone please tell me thats not luxurious!

Looks luxurious to me! I like my black interior, but dust is out of control on it. I have to wipe it down bi-weekly, if not weekly. And with pollen season in full swing, I don't dare put my windows down. My next car will have a lighter leather interior--maybe a light gray.

white with black is the shizzle.

if and when i get an rsx i will get white and hopefully do a black interior swap. just gotta find someone who wants the tan.

black on black would look sick though, especially on the sedan.

your most likely ganna need to rewrap everything...all depends on the materials you use (Suede, Vinyl, CF vinyl, Tweed....etc....) your looking to spend around 1-2,000 for all that labor w/materials.

blue has a gray interior. we're talking about sedans. i think all coupes have black or ivory, no gray.
