My son's interior is faded a bit and he's looking for a bandaid for this summer.   He'll have the insides redone this winter.

Has anyone used this on thier seats??   Summit sells it.

The only one I've seen work is SEM.

EDIT: If you can't find it local to you, I have a place in town that sells it, I'd be happy to get some and ship it your way.

I used the SEM after talking to a couple of different upholsterers and some guys @ the fabric shops, they all said use SEM, so I did, I dyed the interior of my 60 Pontiac, I had new tuck n roll done, including a padded tnr dash pad and parcel tray, in white, let's just say that white is BRIGHT beyond anyone's imagination in the sun. I dyed it a cream color and loved it, sent that car to Japan with that interior in it, good luck, follow all the directions to the T, you'll be good

I read some good reviews of color bond at overton's site.  We're going to give it a try.
Thank you all for your input.

Does anyone know if it is possible to paint or dye the interior parts of a GW? I would like to change the color from cordovan to gray or black. This would include the dash, A/C/ vents, trim for the headliner, rear windows.

Just wanted to let you guys know we scraped the color bond and went with a new interior.  The color was no where close to the color chip when we did a test.  They screwed us around for two weeks to get our money back.  They didn't want to lose a sale.  I wouldn't deal with them again.

I have alot of experience with dyes, The best thing you can do is go to a carquest or equivelent ot were you are and show them a example of your interior. They should be able to match up. They can add flattner and make it not as shiny also. BE SURE YOU CLEAN EVERYTHING THOROUGHLY.

Even though you decided on new I will still fill you in on a secret. When you prep for dye clean with a lent free rag or something cheap and disposable. Wipe it once and throw out. Do this until you dont see anything on the rag and then do it one more time. Clean with laquer thinner (sounds to harsh but trust me) I have done alot of classic cars and boats. Even some Barrett Jackson quality cars and trust me this is the only way to do it. My .02 for what its worth. If anyone on here wants to save some coin I will be happy to explain or show them how to do interiors. Or if you live anywere near Ohio drop it off at my shop.

Good Luck, Have fun

All I can add is to say, make sure you get a color chart mailed to you before you chose the paint.
The computer colors were no where near what we thought we were ordering.  If you call them they ship the chart right out.

I dont know if you have a CARQUEST parts store out there. If you do you can take a sample peice or a chip and they can mix the dye to mach pretty damn close or perfect. Or get some flattner and try it yourself.
