I've been doing some reading, and can Vinyl dye be used both on the fabric door trims and the cluster surround if i wanted to pain that a matching colour?

yep, clean surface thoroughly, coat with a decent plastic primer, then paint with a decent automotive paint

iv done my whole car with vynle paint, on the fabric works a treat, aslong as u got a fair few coats

it does change the feel of the fabric

wouldent recommend changing the plastic tho unless u are prepared to fix it up everymonth it chips off
