Have you got leather/vinyl or cloth?
If leather, are you going to go with rattle cans, airspray equipment, or roller?
Do you need to repair any cracks?

SEM is an excellent system, and their tech service is top-notch.

I do have cracks on the front drivers seat and the interior is leather/vinyl. I either would go with the rattle cans or the roller.

why not just transplant a charcoal interior into yours from the junk yard? would look WAY better... however at that point, why not just by a different car

finding black interior around here for a bonneville is rare, its like trying to find a ssei. God knows I was looking for a ssei. I am going to the junk yard this week hopefully I'll get lucky and find some black bonnie interior if not then I'll just have to dye.

thats a way bigger job then I think you realize. Not only will you need to do the Seats but what about the dash lol you will need to remove that to dye it.

I didn't think I had to remove the dash. I was thinking about taping off other parts of the the interior thats not getting dyed.

Well if you wanted to cover it properly removing it would be the best way
