    Hi all, has anybody used vinyl dye spray for car seats / trims etc.
    Looking changing from 1970s brown to black.

    I used the spray to change mid-brown (hard) plastic to white, on fittings in a motorhome. It stuck on well, and was still looking good eight years later when I sold it.

    I used not spray, but brush-on vinyl paint to change seats from pale grey to black in a car many years ago. Even the driver's seat still looked like it was made of black vinyl a year later when I sold it.

    [Currently dying my (leather) seats to cover a worn bolster - looking good so far, but no idea how well it'll last ... ]

    I did a full colour change some years ago ....brown to black seats, door cards, dash etc, used brush on and spray. It's a good idea to clean all surfaces thoroughly first, I used Medical wipes.

    I second the idea of cleaning carefully first. I used Vim (!) and carefully washed off the traces.
