    LOL, sadly I was wondering the same thing too haha - so to the OP - what do we use to keep it clean, etc?

    BTW, it's great that the moderator made this a sticky and got rid of that other useless thread

    I'm thinking about changing my interior to black from the stock shale, anybody try using this to change the color? I'd imagine it wouldn't be much different, any opinions?

    You have a black interior? I'd trade for my shale if you have an EXT

    I believe he said he has shale and wants to change it to black.

    If this is done, please post pics.

    Wow, black would like nice but what if it got scratched off etc. then you would see the shale color and that would look bad. I dunno, does this stuff come off if scratched on or does it take a beating?

    Re: Diy - freshen up leather seats for $20 - no more ugly seat bottoms

    Well my Escalade was broken into and ripped apart and all of the plastic replacement parts came in and didn't match so the shop was going to spray them shale and I had them hold off cause I'm debating swapping it all in black. SEM makes a product for plastic as well and I would replace the carpet and headliner. If I ever feel courageous enough and do it, I will for sure post some pics. The first thing I'm trying to do is swap the 2nd row bench seats for captains chairs but that is been a long unsuccessful process.

    Re: Diy - freshen up leather seats for $20 - no more ugly seat bottoms

    DO NOT PAINT ANY ESCALADE INTERIOR PIECES WITH SEM'S CLASSIC COAT PAINT! I made a retarded decision yesterday to fix the dash peel with the classic coat, because it was the only exact match in a can that SEM had for the DK PEWTER. Well, apparently the escalade interior pieces are painted with a non-laquer based paint and when sprayed with a laquer based CLASSIC COAT, there is a wicked reaction! The factory paint peeled off the plastic dash as if i had used a paint stripper! I have never had this problem with any other car I have done.... in fact im glad i did it to my car and not a customers! I was able to source a MINT dashboard cover for dirt cheap, but I am just warning you guys! I would try to use the SEM plastic paint in a very inconspicuous spot first!!!!!

    does this stuff actually work? will it last or just fade out or whatever.... my 04 cts is pretty good except for the driver seat, bought it used so maybe the previous owner was a 400 lb guy but the driver seat looks woren and beaten,, been lookin to retore or get a new seat for about a year now, but if this works i will give it a try

    LL I have painted parts of my dash and had no issues other than the shale paint being ever so slightly lighter in color....
