I like it both ways as far as the door caps. I didn't like the door pulls and aftermarket speaker grills in black though. It took a while, but I eventually got some good, original Autumn Leaf door pulls. Using the Autumn Leaf vinyl paint from VB, I painted the speaker grills. I also painted the door seals with that same product (mine were in good shape, but were the Beige color that was original for 1978). Now it all matches....

That paint has held up very well. If needed, I think it would also hold up well on the door pulls since good Autumn Leaf pulls are almost impossible to find.

Maybe you could find vinyl paint that matches the Honey Tan??

I just found a picture of a b with what I was looking for and it looks great. I think with the honey tan that it is light enough to look really good with the black.

So I’m ready for the interior now, finally. Really looking forward to getting this girl back on the road!

I believe I have the scheme you mentioned. Black interior. Wood highlights. Harvest leaf seats.

Thanks for the pics Ted. Looks nice. I was really looking for tan or autumn leaf with just the black accents, like door arm rests and caps, but that is nice too.

You may consider to cap the doors in the Autumn Leaf colour and re wrap the rear cockpit surround with Autumn Leaf vinyl.

When the autumn leaf door toppers became worn out on my '75, I chose to recover them with black vinyl from the local fabric store. I then changed out the door hardware (arm rests and window winders) to these billet alloy items. I quite like the look as it ties in with the dash vinyl and the rear surround vinyl. Also is a nice look as there are other black features in the interior.

Thanks Keith, that is pretty much what I was looking for. I think I’ll do the same, but changed my mind to a lighter color, honey tan.
