Does red go with a dark blue car??

Guys
I have a nice problem to solve - I've run my tudor for a season and got the budget now for a nice leather T&R job, the only problem is I can't decide what colour(s). Eveything's (painted) black inside at present and I like it mean & moody, but it seems a wasted opportunity to go black throughout.
Dark red leather always looks good, but with blue paint??? I've looked back thru loads of rod mags but very few are dark blue, and most of those have tan interior (which I don't like). Don't want any yellow in case I change the wheels later. Anyone got pics of red on blue?

I know its a personal thing but what would YOU do?

I'd say it depends on what you want to call red. A nice burgandy will look good with your dark blue and is still considered red.
Post a pic so we can have a better idea of the colour of the car.

Hmm, great site. This looks better than I expected for red on blue (3rd picture down):

I would probably go for darker red though

Any other thoughts anyone?

I was gonna suggest looking at that truck but you guys already beat me too it.

Yes, that was a bright red interior in a navy blue truck, i was a little skeptical at first, but i thought it turned out great. I think if bright red works, a blood red or closer to a maroon will look good also.

Red,Blue and Yellow are primary colors so Red/Blue or
Red/Yellow and Yellow/Blue.In between your red and blue you have Purple shades depending on mix.Red and Yellow will give various shades of Orange depending on mix.Last Yellow and Blue
will result in Green shades depending on mix.
Try get one of those books printers use, let you see variants against your chosen body/inside colors.

I think if you go for the contrasting colors you will get more of a "look" going on. Just my opinion.

Well according to 3 years in art classes the proper contrast color would be orange. Look at a color wheel and see what is across from blue. Now red does have a component of red soooooo......
How about a deep burnt orange?

Regards
Mark

Simon...take the pic you have or maybe some others, open them up in your Paint program on the computer and add some red to it to see how it looks. Kind of a quick easy way to get an idea.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Jag Daddy- I was toying with the burnt orange type of color as I love then Doane Spencer trim, though not sure it would work...... Think I'll give tartan a miss though (had plenty of stick this year for having a tartan 'mexican' blanket on the back seat!) Green is a possibility I hadn't thought of but makes sense with blue/yellow.

Anybody other ideas?
