Default Made some changes to the interior

Well just as an experiment the other day I decided to pull all these pieces out of my car to change the color:

I decided to go with a black color to see how I would like it, and ended up using 'Lincoln Black' for a dye...the interior dye I use is made for plastic, vinyl, and leather and is a water based dye.

I am not sure how I like it yet..I am either going to change the trim around the gauges/shifter to the same color, or I might mix up something to match the trim around the gauges which is a darker tan/brown and re-do the pieces I did.

Dang it and I thought I was gonna be the first to spray a set of vents black. Ahh well always good to know what they look before I do it. Good job man

Edit: did you repaint the white lettering on the rheostat or did you tape it off?

Can't repaint it...it is transparent so the light shines through at night..

This is the only piece that allows the light the shine through, so I taped and cut with a razor around everything..end result wasn't 100% perfect, but it turned out pretty good!
