    Fresh resto M1009 383 Green/Tan interior

    What do you guys think of this color combo? I know its not stock, but its kinda like jeep feel with the tan interior green exterior. Would it be better with a black dash and dash pad and tan seats? Or how about dash, door panels ect black and just the seats tan? :D David
