Default where to go from here

attached are photos of my interior and engine bay. i have a general idea of where i'm going, but would like helpful input and opinions.

on my hvac/radio bezel, should i go with a carbon fiber wrap, or blue paint?
(blue paint would take away from the blue accent around the lighter well imo, but im looking for ideas so fire away)

would different lights work better in the engine bay?

im getting bench seats for sure, is it better to reupholster them with fabric? or to permanently attach a seat cover in the same way?

should i get a mustang dome light or continue without a light at all?

i know these are personal choices, but would like outside opinions on what would look/work best.

I picked up some "carbon fiber wrap" from auto zone the other day to see how it would work on my bezel and have yet to try it. But i do like the look of it and i would do the dome conversion MODS are always fun and worth it especially one thats not to hard like that

----------

as for the engine bay, those look like the flexible LED strips that you can cut to length? I think those would work well but they do light up brightly so make sure they are pointed down rather than at someone looking at it, i used those in my grill they looked cool!
