If you look at my headrests, the cinnamon is obviously WAY off

Good luck and have fun with it!! Doing my interior was by far the most fun and rewarding thing that i did to my car! Nothing beats siting in your car driving while there's win all around you to look at lol
Your rear headrest are OEM cinnamon and dyed everything else? I'm assuming you started with black because of the lower dash and center armrest.

You bet. I've been wanting to do cinnamon for a while now but was holding out for more guinea pigs.

Nope.. all the cinnamon is OEM except for the REAR headrests

I previously had gray interior, the dash, tonneau cover, and all the door panels were dyed from gray to black (you can see the passenger door panel was still gray when i took that pic) and the gray plastic pieces were replaced with new oem black pieces.

Well damn, that's not what I was wanting to hear. I was hoping you dyed black seats to cinnamon as that's what I would end up doing.
