    i mean, you could try dying them, dont think it would work, there is a write up on here somewhere on how to replace it with leather, or you could have an upholstery store do it also.

    I replaced the carpet on my door panels. remounting the carpet is a little shady but not too difficult... replacing it with vinyl etc would look a lot better than painting and imho be more durable in the long run.

    looks like it might work the problem is i wanted to go with a silver but they only had a gray and its too dark, so im going to look around for a litter gray or silver, if not then i will do it in black, so you guys will have to wait. Sorry.

    Edit, dont do it guys, doesnt come out for shit and its all hard and crusty, im going to put an overlay on mine.

    +1 for "hard and crusty" a guy said he could dye some seats for me years ago and he used the Duplicolor shit and ruined them. It came off on your clothes and I wound up buying new seats.
