'54 Chevy quandary

This is a heavy 1:18 scale "Loc Riderz" 1954 Chevrolet Convertible model by Malibu International Ltd. that was bought about six years ago. It had set on the shelf at WalMart for a long time until the price was finally reduced, so I got it. I like this particular model year Chevy. The fact that it's a convertible with the gold brightwork and trim, whitewall tires and wire wheels, and an adjustable, poseable independent suspension system all are positives about the model. What I have gone back and forth on is the interior color scheme-that pink motif. I can't make up my mind whether to keep it as is or change it. At times it looks to be kind of cool; at other times it appears hideous. What would YOU do with the interior if it were YOUR model and YOU could determine its fate? 1) Leave it as is 2) Repaint the pink another color; what color(s)? 3) Repaint entire interior a different color(s) ? 4) Scrap the model altogether 406088563.jpg406088562.jpg406088566.jpg406088565.jpg406088564.jpg

I think the pink clashes with the gold, I would maybe paint the pink areas the dark purple that is on the top and pin striping.

I'm with Krazglu. Paint the pink to match the dark purple.
