Hey guys, I'm stuck in an indecisive dilemma lol. So for little mods inside my car I wanna paint the vents and the door handles and the odometer top piece but I CANNOT decide on what color. I plan on picking a color that I can also paint my calipers and using that color for the inside pieces so everything matches. I have a '07 tC in Flint Mica. Anyone have any suggestions? Im open to pretty much anything. Thanks!

:welcome I have a flint mica '07 too!! My accent color is a light metallic blue, there's a pic in the introduce yourself thread in the NY chap section. I haven't done any color inside, yet ;) Purple and red also look good with flint mica imo.

pink would look nice, try decals on the outside to see if you fall in love with the color, that's what I did. Decals are inexpensive and they come off if you don't love them. :D

FM was my old color so i always have extra love for an FM tC.

Purple ALWAYS makes for a bomb accent color, i think a little nicer than pink, unless its the right shade of pink. the right shade would be something soft cause a bright pink wouldnt work well with FM

FM has so many different colors in the metallic that really anything would go good with the car. I do second purple... particularly Chrysler Plum Crazy Purple. That would look pretty sweet.

And welcome aboard!

IMO, pink is a little overdone. At least around here.

It may sound crazy, but I like the orange accent inside, since at night, Scion makes all the lighting orange. A little bit of follow thru.
Since you have FM, have you thought about something with a lot of metalflake?

And welcome!!

Let me clarify...
firstly, welcome back!
secondly, by around here, I meant here in the sunny South, not sure what is popular up there
thirdly, magenta is a good choice, not too red, not too pink... you got a sample?

well up here..in CT...theres a few people who mod their scion but its pretty much dead. I convinced my best friend to buy a scion because he drove my car and fell in love with it and he mods it too so basically its him and i so far. lol. his is black and he used orange as an accent and it looks so good. I dont have a sample of the paint, but it was just an idea. im probably gonna paint something little in the inside with it and then take a pic and see how i like it to show you guys. I am considering the purple tho, eventually i wanna change the LED colors on the inside too but i need to find someone to do it because i have no idea what im doing ;) lol

I think purple looks really good with flint mica.

My tc is flint mica too. I painted all my interior pieces flint mica to match the car. I wanted to keep it a neutral color in case I ever sold it.
