Well personally I would do it myself, painting it and all, its cheaper in the long run rather than buying the pieces! Plus thats pretty much the only thing I can do with my car as I am almost mechanically stupid!.... I Painted the interior of my 86 myself, and I think it came out pretty good! Thats just my opinion, but buying the pieces black too would work if thats what you're looking for!

i rather paint but will it peel and look nasty? protective spray or something to put over the paint job?
I have a three part paint thing that I mix after I put the colour on.... plus it shouldnt peel if you buy the right paint! If you want it shiny, you just buy a clear coat of "Plastic Paint"... but just go to a local paint shop and thell them your painting your dash and they'll mix the colour for you in the right paint!.... I suggest to do a test piece first just to make sure you got the right paint.... my first shot at it screwed up and didnt work, but I only painted my choke knob (manual choke)! so its not too too noticeable!

im not gonna thread jack but i think there's a difference, i went with a bright yellow interior and lambo doors so the car would get noticed... for other people. i personally LOVE the look of the black widow kit, ive wanted one since i first saw it

I painted my interior this way:

Remove all interior pieces you wish to paint
clean with warm soapy water, rinse and dry
sand with 200 grit paper to ruff up the plastic
clean again with paint thinner or acetone
spray with "Bulldog adhesion promoter" 2 coats, let dry overnight
spray with "Krylong fusion" 3 coats

so far, no chips, heres a door panel I just did , dash, and the car its going into:
