Cool, clean and sharp...or posuer wanna be?

Hello. Today as I had not so planned to I tore of my passenger door panel (methodically of course ). The 1991 Mustang has metal a few inches wide along the top, which I sanded a bit and put back on the door. This got to me to thinking...maybe a whole door panel out of 'brushed aluminum' would look wicked.

However, the car is not the slightest bit fast, and I dont want to make it look like it is. I also want it to be comfortable, so I need to attach and armrest.

This got me to thinking about how a plastic armrest would look on a metal skinned door. Do you guys have any suggestions or experience with how this look can be acheived properley?

Another concern I had was with the coldness in the winter, and how hot the panel could potentially get in the summers sun. With thin aluminum (or is it steel...I cant tell ), is this a concern?

Any of you have pictures or experience with this type of deal? Advice greatly appreciated....

Personally I wouldn't put a plastic handle on a brushed aluminum door. Try using bent link stainless chain with clear plastic tube around it and just bolt that to the door. You could go all out and get billet aluminum as well. Aluminum wouldn't get too hot but steel will, only solution I can see for hot interior panels from radiant heat is to get a good a/c system.
