change the color of a seat

Postby dsimmonds53 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 8:35 pm



I'm restoring a 1983 Interstate and I'd like to change the seat from brown to black. There are a number of dye products on the market, but I don't know if the seat is leather or vinyl.
Any help out there?

Thanks

If the seat is original, it is vinyl.

Thanks, it's original ugly dirty brown. Hope I can change it to black without too much trouble. Need to find a good vinyl dye.

Check out the product on this site, http://colorbondtuner.com/ LMC Truck carries it in their catalog for changing interior colors.

I have a black stock seat for an 83 I will send to you. Vinyl has some cracks in it. You pay shipping, it's yours.

Sounds great, what would the cost be to send it. I normally use Fedex, but I don't have an account.
Whatever way works best for you.
Also a picture wouldn't hurt.

Thanks

Thank You, As a way of saying thank you, I can powder coat some small parts for you, if you care to ship.
