fabric spary paint... very nice

So i'm working on my interior... picked up some e30 recaro seats for my 318i they along with my bench seat are getting recovered.. black sides and a blue fabric middle section. the original intior colour was a light blue... i'm working on changing all that... i'm still looking for some black 4dr panels to replace the blue ones. No i will not use the vinyl/fabric paint for that... however... i did use it for this....




after first coat...



after second coat....



final coat...





it came out much better than expected... i'm thinking about doing the same thing to the carpet...

i have the same concern..but i would first clean the carpet before i would spray it. The spray is alot like a dye.. i noticed that the fabric doesn't get hard. It still has that "fur" feel to it. At first its a little rough but the more you touch it the softer it gets. Not once after it was fully dry did any black rum onto my fingers.

Back to the carpet...The car does have mats... so it shouldn't be that bad.. but again... still thinking about it. the car is in the body shop and the seats are all out so now would be the best time to do it if i choose to.

On my first e30 I took the carpet out,powerwashed it then black spraybombed it.Believe it or not the carpet was still somewhat fluffy and looked o.k. Not like i would do it again though

You did it right, it needs 3 coats. My interior is done with that (on the e36), looks pretty good IMO.

seems to be holding up well, only thing is if i were to do it again it would be slowly and in multiple coats.

the carpet gets stiff i your not careful, using a brush and alot of elbow work reduces the tack in the end

look on their site, they list the dealers in Toronto

another option is getting a carpet in your colour of choice from bavauto.com
