Hey,
i've been doing a colour change, from grey to blue,
you need a lot of cans. Ive used four and so far all ove done are the rear seats. So thats $40 just for the rear seats. Probably need 6 cans for the two front seats...
then you have door trims, glove box, roof lining etc if u wanna do that...
gets expensive,
looks good though

does it dry hard at all or does the material still feel soft?

doesnt dry hard at all... feels just like before! I would imagine you would need about 12 cans to do the whole interior though... i wonder if its worth it

when changing colours is it possible to go from a dark colour to light one without wrecking the feel of the seat?

hmm, interesting product

It appears to be an air curing dye (ie it adsorbs into the fibres as opposed to a paint which would sit on the surface).

It'll be interesting to see how UV tolerant it is.

Hey good thread Slayar! I've been looking into re-colouring some slightly sunfaded grey headrests.
Has anyone tried the createx transparent fabric paints from airbrushshop listed here
http://www.airbrushshop.com.au/products-paints.shtml

They have some good colours including grey [5129 code] that looks pretty close to vl grey, and a tint white and tint black.
Looks like you could spray it then rub it in with a gloved hand like Slayar did.

For the guys that did this a while ago...

Hows it going? Any colour loss? Does it rub off on your clothes/skin?
