Arrow Redone my interior.

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)

Tips
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.

Re: Redone my interior.

The steering wheel stands out alot more in the photos, compared with real life.

Re: Redone my interior.

Oh and the spray works on basically all surfaces in the car. Just let it dry for longer on the harder surfaces.

Re: Redone my interior.

Looks Good but you need to get a new wheel.... And change some of the other trim pieces.... The contrast from Dark to light in the doors looks gooood....

Cheers

Ben
