I remember seeing the pics months ago and it looked terrific--any chance the pics will be up again soon? Finally getting ready to dye my seats and it would be great to see your process as you'd intended.

Also, the hvlp spray system you got--did you just use the included gun? There's a great looking Wagner system on amazon with favourable reviews for a good price that I may snag for this job and the future.

Thanks!

Yup, I used the HVLP spray gun that came with the graco kit. It has options like vertical/horizontal/ round/ or flat spray patterns. You can also adjust the amount of dye or paint that comes out from the nozzle. Goodluck with the dye job and make sure to take your time and don't do short cuts.

Instead of posting photos, I decided to just do a video so that you can see the condition of my interior as it sits today.

Are you able to clean it regularly without the dye wearing off ? If not, what cleaning solution do you need to use?

Damn fine work, man! Love to see big projects like this. I'm in the process of collecting parts for a black/cinnamon conversion for my grey. I'm too lazy for all that dyeing though, haha. I'm just trolling eBay picking up used bits in good shape. And those seats are beautiful!

Thanks guys! Just an update, my interior still is in fact holding up. I can take photos tomorrow if you guys want to see it. As for cleaning it, I just use Leatherique pristine clean or a damp cloth and just wipe the interior.

Please do. I read this entire thread and all I kept thinking was "what does it look like today??"

Awesome job btw, looks very clean
