Your Imp is really looking good! The black grilles definitely look better. I dipped mine also back in the spring I believe. Knock on wood, they are holding up great. I also put a light coat of glossifier on. With the grilles and the chevy badges, I found the coat of glossifier makes them a little "slicker" and easier to clean. I agree with dipping the wood grain. I did mine silver to match the exterior and love it.

Pop the wood grain bezel around the radio out and dip that black and see if you like the all black look. If so, continue the black to the dash and door pieces. I would think the all black would look good. You could do it white to match the exterior, but I'd be concerned about the white dip getting dirty very easily.

Looking good! Black or white is a win over the fake wood grain!

I would *definitely* test with Plastidip first!! :-)

Personally, I can't imagine having a white dash and would never do it to my car, but everyone has different taste!

Would be interested to see pictures nonetheless though!
