Car is a '86 GT. I am refinishing parts of my interior. PO had changed some of the colors to charcoal. I have installed replacement gray door panels, carpet and floor mats. The dash was badly cracked. I found a good replacement and have painted it the stock gray/black paint scheme with SEM paint. I just pulled the dash and all the related parts. My question is what color should the gear shift surround, HVAC/radio surround, dash cluster surround and upper gauge pod be? Looks like they are black. Should they be the same gray as the door panels or black? The center console is currently charcoal. Should it be gray, charcoal or black?

Nothing was black.

Here is a nice looking 86 GT with good photos....I think the interior is all stock.

If you mean the faceplates, they are a brushed metal color/pattern. If you mean the surrounding trim parts, same color as the top of the dash. A Dark Gray.

I am referring to the surrounding trim parts. The pod around the main gauge cluster, the plastic back panel to the gauge, the auxiliary gauge pod surround, gear shift surround and the HVAC/radio surround. They are a very dark color ... look black, but I guess that they might be dark charcoal. I have just refinished a dash in two tone ... dark upper surface and lighter gray on the lower areas. Has anyone painted the panels that I listed above the same color as the lower dash area? I am not trying to create a custom dash ... just want to have a monochromic color in the interior instead of a mix of grays and black. Looking for opinions.

GTs have a 2 tone dash--the top is a dark gray and the bottom is a lighter bluish gray, a close match would be to go to a hobby store that sells TAMIYA paints--look for "German Gray" also known a "Panzer Grey"---this is a pretty dark gray that is almost a perfect match---but also the Fiero Store has paints made for the fiero that is a perfect match
