You can get it a CT I can't remeber what it's called there is one for vinyl and one for fabric or carpet. I just did the carpet on my winter beater and it turned out great, havn't driven the car yet so can't tell you how well it holds up. Try searching the forum there was a post about it awhile ago, I think the guys who did it did there head liners with no real problems. Some people on here (mostly 1 person) will tell you that it is extremely ghetto but i think if done properly it'll work. Try experimenting first, if u have a winter beater use that. here judge for yourself.

BTW this was a very quick job cause it was cold out and i assume it would work better in the heat cause thats what it says on the can.

hey there

I did it on my interior using VHT color penetrating dye that I got from Performance Improvements. I went from Grey to black and for some of the interior parts that I did not find for the swap, I dyed them and they came out pretty close to my stock parts in terms of color and texture. Its good stuff as it acutally penetrates into the material not just over it.

Its pretty easy to use on things like dashboards and items that are solid, I dont know how it works on cloth but it does work well on carpets...

Here is a look at what I used = it is the VHT Penetrating Color Dye and I used Satin Black.
