looks great man. I would also like to know what type of fabric dye you used, and where you got it? And maybe if you could tell us how you did it to get that oem look, like how many coats and shit?
hey guys, thanks for the nice words. the interior dye i used can be found on www.interiorone.com in the dye section or you can click on this link: interior one its the one that comes in a spray can. its a bit more expensive than other kinds you can get at Pep Boys or Autozone, but it seems to work very well. the color i got is Satin Black.Xenon Supra said:That looks great!

What kind of fabric dyer did you use? Where did you get it? Thanks

Glad you are now posting pics of the progress with your ride. My car too is now going to go under the knife sometime this week, it will be sleeping in the garage with the hood off for a while The weather down here is heating up, and so is the action with the meets and the races.

thank for the compliments. the dye i used is the one thats in an aerosol can. im not sure if you need the slip stuff for that. a day after the carpet dried, i vaccumed it and then wiped it with a damp cloth ( no bleeding onto the rag at all) and it seems fine, nice and smooth.slither said:Looks awsome man. I gotta ask though, on that site it says you also need a tube of the "slip" stuff to keep it soft, did you use any of that?
travis, im pretty sure the dye will cover up the stains, but im not so sure about the burn especially if it really burned through the carpet. in anycase, you should really clean the carpet very well with RESOLVE or any kind of carpet/fabric cleaner before using the dye.xskaboomx said:Hey, one question for you. I'm planning on re-doing my tan carpet. However, I have some stains under the passenger side seat and what looks like to be a small burn around the shifter console. Does this dye cover up flaws like these? Also, what about the smell? I have my suspicions that the previous owner may have smoked in the car and sometimes it smells a little musky. Does this process help in any way with these problems? I'm assuming it won't be of much help, but just checking to see if you have any input. Thanks!
