    Hello boys and girls,

    I've recently replaced my old ripped and faded black interior with a rather nice one, in beige. Or sand. Or whatever they call it. Anyway, thing is, the carpet really doesn't match the seats now, and it kind of stands out in all its grey awfulness.

    Does anyone know a good fabric paint that will stick to the carper? I'd love to paint it beige! And do you think it will be fine over time? Or will it need constant respray due to fading off and revealing the grey again?

    Thank you!

    Gabriel

    P.S. This is the interior vs the carpet:

    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    Im dying my carpet soon mate from grey to black and im just using normal fabric dye. Iv read loads of reviews on it i will try and find it again. In your case i suppose you would have to bleach the carpet first or something then dye it tan/beige

    I've often thought about doing this. I don't think paint would last at all, but have always thought some black fabric dye (dylon for example) would work!

    I agree i wouldnt paint it, not only would it crack and look shite in the summer it would also make your carpet feel really rough

    Personally I think black carpets would look better. Oh and put the tan leather panels in the original black door cards (if thats possible) Think that would look awesome

    Thanks buddy, that helps! I'll use the same dye, apparently it does what is says on the tin.

    Not sure if black carpet would suit better than beige. It would make things a lot easier to paint it black, no bleaching and hundreds of dye layers, but unsure if the colour would suit the interior.

    And unfortunately, I don't have the old black door cards as they were absolutely beyond human repairing abilities. So I think I'll leave them as they are. Would have love that colour combo, though.

    how bad where they mate? Iv had some pretty nasty doorcards but by the end of the day then have been good as new, Iv had to take the cloth bit out take the cloth off refabric it then glue it back in place and also glue the doorcard pockets back into place aswell but still been worth it, should never through anything away

    Im just trying to find out how much some leather would be to take the doorcards apart again and remove the cloth then cover them in leather then put them back together again
