Sounds good. I'd try it and see how it goes. You can also try and get the interior off an 2009-2011 1.6.
The area around the A/C vents should be silver, unless you have the base S.I have the black interior, so the entire center console/dash is black.
We have the same color so I've noticed the difference. And thats cool. I love the black trim features.ooooooooooh. haha. I want to paint the center console (area around the radio and the ac controls) and those side areas with the silver. I thought you were talking about the tan interior vs black interior.
