I painted the inside of the storage compartments white or off white. Any light color will be an improvement over black. It makes them much lighter inside so better to see what's in there. The downside is that any imperfections show really well. I guess that's why the factory paints 'em black.

Good idea. Lots of people install battery operated lights, too. Black is almost impossible to light well.

In my hiking days, i painted the inside of my large pack compartments white for the same reason. Good idea to apply that trick to your storage!
