Default Anyone had success dyeing their carpet etc?

Having changed the seats and door card material from beige to black the crappy beige carpet and parcel shelf look pish. I really need to change them to black too.

While looking I have been given a price for a blue shelf and grey carpet to be dyed black but itís high. The dyeing option gave me the idea to try it myself on my own carpet, shelf and the door pocket material.

Has anyone here done it, and if so how well did it turn out?

Did you pursue this?

Some of the velour in my white Coupe has UV fading on it and I’m tempted to try and dye the seats and other affected bits

This looks like it might do the trick

Nope, not done it yet. Thinking that as all the seats and console have to come out to remove the carpet Iíve waited for the better weather. Now itís here Iím busy and havent managed to strip the car yet.

The parcel shelf that was dyed still looks good if that helps?
