you can dye leather, but its not something to try at home, get a pro to do it. To dye a vinyl dash it cost around $300 by a pro, leather would cost a similar amount

Thanks, considering what i payed for the leather probably wont be worth spending that sort of cash!

I want all the seats, door trims and console cushion lid done.

probably cost me over a thou in that case.

Cheers anyway

what actual sealer have u got?

the leather seats in our cars are only part leather.
i found the vinyl takes the dye really well... but the leather allows it to rub off.
i havnt been able to seal it properly thus far.
