I have a Cappa interior, but I hate the grey looking door trims. Makes it look dirty. Can the Velour take dye very well, and the seats for that matter?

Cheers.

I was at a motor trimmers the other day, and he had a velour seat there, that he was dying from a yuck maroon colour, to black.

It looked pretty good.

Although, I am guessing he had professional dye, and knows all the tips on how to apply it correctly.

I'd just by cappa door trims. Because the dye might not match the colour of the rest of your interior. Does anyone know if you can buy dyes in factory colours?? :?

So you think the door trims might be a bit faded if there gray. It's a dirty color, but I have a feeling it's the original color.

P.S Who here hates that friggin insert button on the keyboard..... arrrgghh

the door trims shouldn't be grey. Our EL futura has cappa and the whole interior is cappa including seats, door trims, roof lining etc. Are all of your door trims grey? or just one part of it, ie: the top section (which gets the most wear)

Yeah it's only the velour part of my door trims that are Grey, the seats could use a bit of cappa dye in them as well. The vinyl on top of the doors are still that dark brown.
