REStang said:I used the flat black Duplicolor brand Vinyl/Upholstery dye in a spray can. I took the panels off of the doors. I used some degreaser and cleaned them good. Next since I only wanted the top half black, I taped off and covered the bottom then I sprayed them. No need for sanding or priming. Just clean and spray. It came out perfect as if it was that way from the factory. The black is exactly the same as the factory black.
REStang said:The dye is a general flat black it's not vehicle specific. I don't want to go all black because I want the interior to be two toned. I plan on having my two front seats re-upholstered but I can't decide if I want to do all black seats or black with a beige insert in the middle. I do plan to get black floor mats. I'm also doing a rear seat delete which will be black.
If anyone plans to dye their interior, I suggest this stuff (Duplicolor Vinyl/Upholstery dye) because it comes out looking like a factory job. Do not buy the shiny kind get the flat kind. I have seen some guys interiors and they used what looks like regular paint and it looks horrible and it peels. They have other have several colors to choose from.
