Post interior color

I am in the process of a building a custom Opel GT for street and show. I would like to put in a white interior to offset the shiftshade paint--I have had several people tell me not to put in a white dash because it would be too hard to drive because of sun glare. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

I had a 67 rs camaro painted corvette yellow with the dashboard in yellow. I am not for sure about white but the yellow was very glaring on a sunny day---but with sunglasses on not that bad to drive.

I would not believe that because in the early 80's Cadillac had white dashes on Eldorado's for years.

I drive a work van and I allways throw my papers on the dash, usually the papers are white and on a sunny day I have to take all the papers off of the dash. Try putting white papers on the dash of your vehicle that you drive and see what happens

Everyone has an opinion on this . I helped with a boom box on wheels a while back , He had a white dash for show but he started driving it and it irritated him . We looked at options to relieve the glair with no luck . We finally did a black dash . As a rule black will work with any color , I have had luck with different shades of Gray as well . If you look at all the new cars on the market you will see a prevelant lean toward black , dark gray , dark blue , red ect , even tan dashes are rare because of the glare . GM actually did a study on distracting features , the light colored dashes was on the top of the list followed by the voice of a computer , and obnoctious buzzers . GM went with a darker tint on their glass and windshields that lean back hide glare more . Im honestly not shure what color your talking about but if its bright , the white will only make it worse . There is no law saying you cant do graphics on a dash , we did black , dark blue , dripping over the dash and onto the console like some one poured paint over the dash . it looked cool . :p
