    This is the interior of my 81, i don't think its too bad looking but the door panels are falling apart and i am considering changing up the color/color scheme of the whole interior. The seats have custom covers that are embroidered on the head rest. I was considering going all black, but i also thought about leaving some of the current interior and going for a 2 tone red and black. I would really appreciate some opinions. Thanks.

    I think I would do it basically just like it is now, changing the silver out for black. I would keep the dash, console, and carpeting red and have the door panels and seats black. Just my opinion. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Is that a Canadian car?
    I ask because it has no "Check Engine" light.

    I've seen two different versions of Red interiors in 1981 Camaros.
    One version looked like a carry-over of the carmine interior used in 80 while the other variant was labeled as "Red", which was a shade darker.

    IMO, black seats and door panels would work pretty well with the other red pieces.

    Not sure if its a Canadian, i wanna try and find out now though. This interior does look darker than carmine so it probably is "red". I was thinking the same thing for the 2 tone, thanks for the input.

    Black dash, kick panels, console and rear speaker shelf, silver or SEM Warm Gray (like 10th anniversary Trans Am) on the rest silver carpet, will pop!
