Has anyone had good results dyeing interior parts,and if so,what products did you use? I have way too much tan and would like to break it up with some black.

I have the same sea of tan. I plan to recover the door inserts black, add a black armrest, use black shift and brake boots, leather brake handle, and will either put in black seats or recover them with Black and Tan two tone leather, in the pattern of the thread linked above. I think it'll be just enough to break it up a bit while being stylish.

I was thinking along those lines to.I have changed the shift boot and brake boot to black and was thinking the door inserts would look good black, but was wondering if I could get by with dying,painting them though not sure if it would hold up.I was also thinking about the back where the sub is.I've been looking for a leather hand brake cover also.Have you been able to find one?

I got a set from ebay vendor topgaiters. You can customize your order with them and the price is right. I got black boots with tan stitching and they are nice quality. Shipping took like five days.

After seeing the other dye job, I bet you could dye the door panels. But you'll have to remove them to do it. It's a small patch of leather, so I think it would cost close to the same and be more work to dye. That said, I think you should have matching material (color and texture) in the seat inserts and the door inserts. Either dye both or recover both. Otherwise it may start to look like too many different materials.
