Default Question about painting the interior.

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2 4-Door Sedan. What would the best way to go about this be? The only way I have heard of changing the interior color, specifically the dash and door panels, is to paint them. What is the best way to do this, or is there any other way to change the color? Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

are you wanting to change all the panel colors?

like beige to black...or are you wanting to paint it a pretty color like red or green?

I was planning on just a from beige (the current color) to flat black color for now.
In addition to the door panels and dash I was also thinking of the center console of the dash too, just to clarify.

itd be easier (but more costly) to just swap the panels.

swap everything...

if you decide to paint it, you run the risk of messing up. painting such a large area will reveal mistakes very easily. also, if you dont do a great job at it, youll hate yourself for it.

sounds much easier said than done. with all the different cars and parts for those cars out there, might have trouble finding one.
