    ok...where do i start?

    now im not going to do this until i have $$$$ but how would i go across changing a complete brown/saddle/butterscotch interior, to a dark green interior?

    now, figure i can get leather seats done in green no prob. i can also get new carpet green no prob.

    the only thing left are the dash, and the panels. how on earth would i change those to green? i hear of dyes but are they any good? or just last resort? everythings in excellent shape by the way except the front seats which get used like a car should be, but thats irrelevant.

    ..dark green by the way

    Check the leatherique.com website and send them a message on any questions that you have on the dye end of things. They have been in business since 1968 and are very fine people. I have had very much success with their leather products and they can relate answers to your inquiries. Good luck on the project.

    leathermagic.com can get you an EXACT match for the factory green colour you need. their instructions are easy to follow and the results are fantastic. A cash outlay of 50 bucks wil get you all you need to do the job.

    The plastics and vinyls can be dyed. I got this website you might want to check because they sell dash overlays and also plastic and vinyl dye for about $17.00 bucks a can if you want to DIY. http://www.autostyles.com/faqcoverlay.htm
