Carpet & Vinyl Dying
« Reply #1 on: 02:32:19 PM / 12-Nov-09 »
The Duplicolor holds up pretty good for the vinyl but doesn't hold up pretty well for the carpet. I tried dying my carpet with it with three cans of black(it was originally light blue). After it dried up, i washed a part of it with water to see if it held up but really didn't.

The problem is some extensive dyeing leaves the carpet "crispy". Which is why it's almost better to get a repro carpet from any number of carpet people online.

THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.

Really doesn't work well on fabric. I used Duplicolor vinyl and fabric paint and worked great on panels. I did my center console in white and it came out great, even the leathery arm rest top. Just sucked on anything carpet or seats. Just came out crusty and didn't really change the color all the way.
