got my interior (headliner,rear deck, door inserts, and A,B,C pillars) done in Black suede back in Feb..
I then painted the overhead console and rear grab handles black to match..
one of the things that has bugged me since is the door trim is still tan..
so yesterday I bought a $3.00 bottle of black tennis shoe polish...
I was a little worried it might not work, so I applied it to part of the molding that is hidden behind the dash/door trim
applied it and waited about 2 hours for it to firmly dry..
it doesn't come off.. the trim is some kind of felt material and it absorbed the shoe polish like a sponge..
so I did all 4 doors..
much much better..

Very nice, Mr. i.
It's all about those little details, nice job.
doesn't seem too. it was a bottle of liquid black tennis shoe "shine and wax" got it at the grocery store.. KIWI brand.. it's not a paste, but a liquid, so probably a Dye as you said..
I wet it with a spray bottle today to test it and wiped it with a cloth, nothing came off.. so the felt or whatever it is absorbed it well and it seems to be permanent
and yeah it matches perfect..
yes it is a great invention by some guy on this forum... hmm what was his name????????????????????
oh yeah it was you.....

Hmmmm Good idea, now if I can find that in navy blue..lol
far as I know and can tell it doesn't.
the 3 pillar covers were removed, the suede cut and stitched, then glued to the pillars covers.
so there is no interference with the pop clips for the air bags..
it's basically a cover that is glued with upholstery glue to the plastic.
here are some more pics of my interior so you can see:
THAT IS HOW IS SHOULD HAVE COME FROM Brampton!!!!!
That looks sick!!!
