Neil1138's Interior Project, tis gonna be fun

Well I haven't had the sport seats long but we all know black seats are wayy out of place in a tan interior. I thought about just going the simple route and dyeing the black seats tan but where is the fun in that? Though tan interiors are damn sexy done the right way, it is time for a change. People have had good experiences with dyeing interiors so I'm going to give it a shot

Sourcing black interior parts: I have so many parts on order but these are the ones I found at the junkyard. Got them all for $150 total

black dash

ewww needs a good wash

Just little pieces here and there

I still need to find/order headliner pieces and some little black pieces here and there. Not in a rush though... This is my current interior, just put the wheel on the other day. omg



And yeah...

Some of you guys thought I would be doing imola red but apparently doing a color change to imola is near impossible to do. They explained to me how red dye isn't as strong of a dye as it used to be and how it would never turn out well because imola is just straight weak red dye, nothing else. But they said cinnamon would work because it was a potent dye with whites, yellows, reds and oranges in the dye. So I ordered 48 oz of cinnamon... this is gonna be tons of prep work, lol

I will be dyeing the front seats, rear seats and all of the door panels cinnamon. It will be done in the coming weeks so subscribe! Just wanted to shout out to Alec for helping me out with questions, I really appreciate your patience. This thread will be T3 death once I'm done, just sayin. I liek my pics

Cheers guys

EDIT: I didn't think I'd have to deal with this again but if you guys like this thread, rate it accordingly. Some people go around and just give my threads 1 star ratings for no reason and it's kinda lame. I know it's not a big deal but hey, threads like these don't come along often so if you want, a proper rating would be really cool
