Spice Up Your Mustang's Interior And Give It Some Class With Billet Fare
Horse Sense: Billet interior knobs and handles add a nice touch to a Mustang's interior, but it's easy to go overboard. If you think you might have too much billet in your interior, you probably do.
If there's one thing that really makes an interior look cheap, it's plastic parts such as switches and knobs. Of course, plastic is inevitable-it's even preferred for many reasons. It's easy to shape and mold, it costs less than steel, it's lighter than steel, and it can be made from recycled materials.
That's fine for a door-panel assembly, a console, or a lower dash panel. But when you look at the A/C control knob, headlight knob, and other items in the interior, you can't help thinking, A nice set of contrasting knobs would look much better than that black plastic stuff.
Fortunately, our friends in the aftermarket agree. Today, billet interior accessories are big business, and even if it's only the A/C control knobs, just about every Mustang these days is sporting billet somewhere.
For this buyer's guide, we went to the companies that are whittling out the Mustang-specific billet goodies you see at the shows and in 5.0&SF features. While there are a few street rod- type companies that will sell you billet inside rearview mirrors and other non-Mustang-specific items, we haven't included them here. There's nothing wrong with their products-we're just looking for the Mustang stuff this time around. So, if you've been thinking about making your interior a brighter place to be, now's the time to open your wallet.
