Back To Black!!!

I know all E30 guys with a dark carpet suffer from the dreaded fading rear deck after all of those years of UV damage.

Today, I took off the rear deck and dyed it to look like brand new!

-Black pre-mixed dye purchased from Michaels-$6.99+Tax
-Spray bottle

-Remove rear dash(if you cant do this please don't ever work on your car alone)
-Blast the rear dash with the hose to get the dirt out of the fabric.
-Stand up the dash to dry
-Fill the spray bottle with the premixed dye
-Spray evenly across the whole rear dash almost like you're spray painting.
-Wait for the dash to dry

A very simple procedure for a great outcome.
