Interior Project (Pics Inside)

Guys My car needs a new headliner, carpet, and a driver side seat.
Ive been tossing around the idea of wrapping the entire interior in leather to give it a more high class feel.

Another option Ive considered was painting all the interior panels with a semi gloss or matte plastic paint. Along with a true black headliner and true black carpet and new MRC seats.

Well I didnt want to tear the interior out of the DD and then have the paint look like hell, but today I had a local guy give me all of the panels out of a 95 formula.

They are all tan now, but tommorow I will be spraying them with some krylon fusion to see how they come out.

Also will be doing the insert of the firebird door in either leather or vinyl but I cant decide on a color. Silver maybe, something like a dark silver but not exaclt the stock color, charcoal.

Too dark to work on them now but Ill be gettin up bright and early tommorow before going to the track to work on them. Will get yall some pics then.

All the panels so far have come out great with no streaks (I was really worried about that) and very little to no depth/darkeness variation)

Now I need to go get some leather so I can start on the door panels.

UPDATE
The track trip got cancled so I decided to do a little more work.
Pics



Then I started looking at the door panels and Im trying to plan a mod of attack.


The tan outer part (1.) will be painted since its plastic.
What color and material do you think I should do the insert (2.)in , Im thinking maybe suede or leather and a dark silver or a color slightly off the paint color. What do you think?
What should I do with the vynil handle (3.)? Ive heard of vynil paint flaking off pretty bad, should I just wrap it in a black leather or do any of you have any better Ideas? Could I dye it?
