Dyeing the interior in the GA

So I started this project a month or two ago. Going good so far, got the door panels done, the headliner, the rear deck wrapped, painted the speaker grills, door trim pieces...Just got to finish up the door trim pieces, and rip the dash out and dye it..Pics

It actually wasn't bad. Other than the airbag in the steering wheel and actually removing the wheel with no puller. Putting it back in should be more fun..lol right

hey, i want to do the same to my interior since its not all the same black or dark charcoal...whatever the color is. did you jus spray the dye on the dash and door panels and thats it? and since its been a few days dry already, does it look glossy like paint? or like OEM black? cuz i want mine black but look stock. and how is it on cloth materials like the headliner? or that fuzzy stuff at the back surrounding the rear speakers?

I sanded it with 400grit and then wiped with rubbing alcohol. I didn't clear, would be blinding. Looks just like an oem panel and everything..the fabric didn't turn out as perfect as I wanted, but it will do...

mine is textured as well, it's just to get imperfections and any oil or grease off the plastic. I didn't sand till smooth, just a quick scuff, wipe, spray, done..
