Paint/Dyed Seat!!

Pulled my seat and used Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric Maroon to paint it. I wish it was a little more red, but I think it will go good with my interior that I am painting toreador red. You can still see the diamond shapes at certain angles, but I think it loks pretty cool! Let me know what you guys think!

They had it at Autozone and Advanced Auto in the paint section. It took about 1 1/2 can to get it to look the way that I wanted. So about 6 cans for the front and back. At $4 a can that is a pretty cheap mod!

looks good man. was it spraypaint? did you have to tape off the black? or was it like a hand paint thing, so you just kinda went at it? and how long did it take? very nice color though.

It comes in a spraycan just like paint. I taped everything off and started it last night. It did stiffen a little but figure that will work itself out once it starts getting use. It doesn't rub off at all. Have rubbed the hell out of it with my hands and with a sock and no residue!! Thanks for the compliments!

Why not. It is simple. I was hesitant at first then I tried it out on a gray shirt and said F-it!! I love the way it came out so, it was worth the risk. And hell now that you know it works then what do you have to lose??

Had me scared there. I went and looked and there is no overspray. I don't know why the pic came out that way. It's not like that on the original.

I swear if you guys dont stop comming out with good ideas Im going to be broke. I bought a can but I'm worried about how dark it is so I am going to try it out first and see if it will match the fabric I'm using to recover accents in the car. How does this stuff compare to just standard dies which are avalable in many more colors?
