All plastic components in cockpit will be painted black and seats will be black. Not a fan of tan or beige

Have not been doing much of anything. Did finally manage to talk the wife into removing the shiney 17 " rims and low profile tires and replace with some 15 inch non low profile tires.
What really made her decide was both rear tires started coming apart .
