    im looking to change my roof lining from a grey colour to black, what would be the best way to do this? im thinking either cover it in fabric or dye it. Im not to keen on the idea of spray painting it because iv sprayed my parcel shelf and although it looks the dogs it feels rough. i wanna keep my roof lining soft aswell as soft as i can

    just look on ebay or in for sale sections on forums for a black one!
    they are fairly easy to fit!

    I used the spray dye to do my parcel shelf and it was ok, you need to brush it after it's sprayed.. stops it clumping together and feeling rough
