    I tried 3m spray adhesive and no go sanded all the old glue off prepped it all and nothing still popped off

    no no no wanted to try and dye the leather from the charcoal black to the pre black. I also want to dye my leather knob

    as far as the duplicolor that would be totally fine to use for the inserts if I'm right? I was going to order all the SEM products from late model but I heard they were different shades?

    I'd go to a paint store and talk to them about the dye. They'll not only have good products but they'll truly know what they're talking about.

    As for the spray adhesive, that doesn't surprise me. I'm not quite sure what you're trying to stick together in your door panel but tape beats spray every time.

    94-95 had perforated door inserts as all the plastic welded tabs on the back were destroyed i was trying just to glue them on instead as i tried epoxying pine tree fasteners to it and they were to far out may try it again.

    And alright thanks didn't think it would be hard to do I just have 50 shades of grey going on in my interior lol

    I would go straight up epoxy on the inserts.

    Again I am not sure what panels your painting but plastic/vinyl dye and spray paint/duplicolor are COMPLETELY different things.

    one thing i shy away fro is any vinyl/fabric paint on seats lol. not saying it wont work. i'd spray the hell out of it with alcohol and scotch brite the shit out of it too!

    the duplicolor comes flat or gloss black. the gloss black looks exactly like black leather with armorall on it...the flat looks more like natural leather. have no clue if i helped here :confused1:

    As for the door panel inserts, I used a Plastic Weld Epoxy you find in the adhesive section at your local parts store. It comes in a red tube. Mine have been glued for like two years now and its held up great.

    you can duplicolor the rear seat i'd imagine. especially if you don't steadily have people sitting in it. prep it right and i'd say it will look good. you can definitely duplicolor the door panels/door pulls. it'll just be off a tad. not too bad tho

    Alright sweet thanks Tony i gave epoxy double stick and duct tape a try last night double sticked pieces of the panel to hold it in place while the epoxy set up then used duct tape as extra insurance. Still nothing i dont get what im doing wrong lol i sanded it to remove all the old glue wiped it down with alcohol laid out the epoxy and they still fall off im tempted to go race car and toss the doorpanels in the garage

    well if it s still savable try contact cement. the kind you brush on. that should definitely work.
