Need Some Advice

Postby MAXX WRENCH » Sat Sep 23, 2006 5:24 pm

On my 01 C5 i want to make the bottom section of my interior door panels torch red however they are not mad of hard plastice but rather a leather or vinyl covered pad that is charcoal gray. Does anyone know how you can "paint" or color this kind of material? I have seen pictures of several other C5's that have had this done. I would really like to know how they do it. Any help or advice at all would be appreciated.

YEP; RIGHT HERE! :
http://www.speco.com.au/vht_vinyl.html

"VHT Penetrating Colour Dye for vinyl and carpeting is a one-step process that restores or changes the colour of any vinyl upholstery, seats and trim, or the “short nap” carpeting found in today’s cars, boats and watercraft. It is ideal for use on stiff or pliable vinyl, simulated leather or plastic. VHT Penetrating Colour Dye is not a paint but a true dye which permanently changes the colour of the substrate. It is extremely resistant to cracking or fading. Careful preparation is essential and all traces of dirt, silicone products, vinyl and rubber protectorants, oils and greases must be removed. Incomplete preparation will not produce a satisfactory result." :D
