My Holiday Project and a Little XMas Gift
 
I know I'm late, but MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! Got some legit wheels for the car:

19x10 rears with a fat, stepped lip and 2pc construction. Gotta love it.

And I decided to do an interior overhaul as I have two weeks off :D

Sand and prep :huh?:

And coming along beautifully! Still a work in progress, but a few more coats oughta do it (yes I know the middle insert needs to catch up, lol)... *rockout*

It's been almost two full days I've been at this. Cleaning every nook and cranny of the seats and door panels was laboriously painful, but necessary in order to get the dye to adhere as best as possible. Looks like the results will be worth it.

Stay tuned.

Always wanted to do the interior dye, never had the guts. Can't wait to see it and how it holds up.

I can't believe how well its coming along

Dare you to wear all white clothes the first day out.

Nearly done, but I'm running out of dye! :mad: It's gonna be cutting it close. Black leather took nearly twice the recommended coats to cover the black dye.

It's all in the prep work... dyeing is easy. I spent over 10 hours cleaning, scrubbing, degreasing, sanding, and prepping all the surfaces. By the looks of it so far, it's gonna be worth the effort. Man up, Terry!

I'm with Julian on this one, it's going to be a scene if it rubs off on your clothes :D

That's hardcore, would love to see the end result. :)

That is what I would call an enthusiast.

Ahhhh would suck if he got out of the car and his ass was all red. lol :moon:

dbworld4k 01-04-2012 10:25 AM

Lol, won't happen. It doesn't rub off (I've tested it thoroughly...) or scratch/crack/chip.

T.Dot_E30 01-04-2012 10:38 AM

Pretty sure it will be dry by April/May or whenever you plan to drive it again.

richie_s999 01-04-2012 10:51 AM

Looking good, how much change did you find when u pulled the seats
