Alrighty, after a bit of stuffing around i have nearly completed my interior 'transformation'
Heres what i done;
-Removed all the door trims and dyed them black
-Dyed dash black
-Installed cd mp3 player
-And Neon blue intrument lighting
Total cost around $150 (not incudig cd). Could have been done for less, but i stuffed around a bit.
Here are some pics (int. is quite messy, and dusty)
The first are my half assed attempts at taping up the dash so it can be spayed with dye.
In progress pics
Heres a bit of dash and door action
This picture didnt come up too well. And the car is messy as atm
Nearly finished rear door, without the winder
Front door (crap pic)
I was also going to dye the light gray bits blue , but couldnt be stuffed :)
Will be getting some seat covers soon (dont want to risk a attempt at dying them)
Do what the can says ( i used VHT Vinyl dye spray. 'Satin Black' in color)
Wash the surface thouroghly
DONT spray at close range (eats away the vinyl!!)
After a few sprays, Let dry for a day/over night, wipe it down. Look at it in GOOD Light from all angles then touch up. Let dry as can says.
Tape evry thing off (dont be lazy like me)
When spraying areas which are likey to be touched alot, leave it longet to dry, and give it a couple extra coats.
