Dyed my interior door panels Imola Red.

Always loved the Imola red leather so this weekend decided to dye my interior door panel inserts. I think they came out really nice.

Any information on prep work before actually dyeing? I've seen a bunch of the other threads on guys doing interior overhaul and was wondering which approach you took.

Looks great.

Man, that looks good. I really like those red door panels and I'll probably steal that for my to do list. I took a look at the other pictures of your car and I think it looks fantastic. I really like the red on black. I have an Imola red ZHP and I just love that color.
