Default RE: interior color change


Dyeing the whole interior is a pretty "involved" proccess. I have a 58 and after buying reproduction "Gulfstream Blue and White" seat covers I realized they did not match the faded remaining door panels,trim, and new white dash (which had to be dyed also). Everything had to be removed including the console........cleaned.........and then sprayed with a puchased matching dye. You can buy special kits for this purpose. My guess is you would have to do the same. How you choose to do the dash and seats is up to you. I do stress though that all pieces be COMPLETELY FREE OF ALL DUST AND GREASE. My dye supplier sent me a special cleaner to be used before spraying anything. This will eliminate any "fish eye" patterns or uneven finishes on your final results. You may want to just invest in a new interior since all soft components are reproduced to original specs and readily available. I would stress too that the dash pad is a monster to replace.
