Looks like an older post, Paul, so you must have completed this project by now. Jayoldschool is absolutely correct, re-coloring or changing the color of interior vinyl and fabric requires a DYE, not typical paint. I used PPG's SC line with a $20.00 gravity fed HVLP spray gun from Harbor Freight in my home shop with a small air compressor to convert my '68 Harvest Gold (gross green, really) to Black on my '68 fastback. Coverage was good, application was great, results fantastic. Headliner, sunvisors, front and rear trim panels (including carpeting), rear inner sail panels, window crank knobs, seat belts, rear view mirror cover, column shift & signal lever knobs, inner window lock pull, front kick panels, front & rear armrests....did it all and looks fantastic. I used SB12 Jet Black, requires no mixing, thinning, hardening, catalyzing...just shake, let bubbles setlle, strain into gun, and shoot. All automotive aftermarket paint supplies make similar products. I was able to shoot the hard plastic dash trim & front & rear armrests with same product using an adhesion promoter first. Get all parts CLEAN CLEAN first.....Jayoldschool is also correct that this will NOTY repair any damaged vinyl or "fill" or "cover" any rips or gouges, it's cosmetic only. If you've finished project already, how'd you do it and how did it come out?
