Interior suggestions?

Hi All,

I have an old Rambler American I'm building into a low-key hotrod. Aside from wheels & tires, it will look stock on the outside. The car is two-tone white over light green and I'm unsure of what colors to go with on the interior. All white is out, I'm too messy when it comes to working on things, it would be grease-stained in minutes. I need to find a pair of bucket seats and was wondering about having them recovered. Katzkin prices start at $1800/pr, waaay over my budget. My initial thought was black carpet and seats, white headliner, green painted metal pieces and green/white design door panels. The wife thinks it'll look tacky, but black buckets are easy to find and I don't have to drop a bag of cash to get them recovered.

What other companies besides Katzkin make replaceable seat covers? And I have no idea what seats yet, so they'd prolly need to be custom, as in sewn from a pattern.

So, my little "Feng Shui" experts, I need color suggestions for:
  • headliner
  • carpet
  • seats
  • metal trim
  • soft trim

Thanks!

Russ
