Hi Guys,

The black carpet in my 83' has some sun faded areas that are dark green now. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good dye to use to make everything black again?

try this:

http://www.eastwoodcompany.com and search for "vinyl dye". I use a product made by the SEM company - they have plenty of colors including black. It works just as well on carpet as it does on vinyls and plastics. Check out the pix:

Should cost approx 10-12 bux per can. You can probably also buy these at a nearby auto upholstery shop too.

Thanks for the link! I did the search, and came up with a spay can product. Is that what you used on your cloth?

Wow, is this wanting an all black car really this common? I'm doing the same thing (interrior is pretty bad, and I figured since I need to strip or restore most of it anyway, it would look better in black). Now I'm wondering if I should stick with my blue interrior (85 blue leather)

My girlfriend is forever watching stupid shows like "trading spaces" and stuff of that sort. I told her what I wanted to do with my interior(make it all black) and she told me she saw on the show that there is "fabric paint" out. She says it's like a liquid that you actually paint brush on, and it actually comes out really well, no paint feel, looks good, and suspose to last for a very long time. If anyone knows where I may be able to pick some up(home depot, sherman williams, online, ect.) give me some advice.

I am still taking "before" pics right now. :lol:

I need to order the dye, and I will probably get to it in a couple of weeks. I will post the "before & after's" here when it all goes down.

has anyone tried that new Krylon paint

Has anyone tried that new Krylon paint that is supposed to molecularly bond to vinyl and plastics???
It looks like it might have potential.
What do you think?

Yeah, Ive tried the krylon paint on my interior rear quarter panel. It was red and the rest of my car is black/blue interior so i got some of that black krylon paint. Sprayed it on a couple times and its awesome. The quarter panel looks brand new, and the krylon cant be scratched off. Truely amazing spraypaint in a can!
