Okay Boy & Gals

I thought of this cool little project about a month ago and finally started it the other day. I have an 06 SS/SC with White Stitching on my leather and if you do too here is a cool 2 day project.

Tools needed:
Tooth Brush
A really good Carpet & Fabric Cleaner (a diluted bleach solution as well incase there is a LOT of grime.)
A FabricMate dye pen "to match your car's color"
Finally....Elbow Grease

Go around each of your seats, head rests, stearing wheel and dont for get the back seat, with a tooth brush. I sprayed the cleaner directly onto the brush to minimize clean up.





Once dry...a few hours to overnight. Take your Fabric pen. And go to work! Make sure to clean up any dye on the surrounding leather as you go. Might be helpful to have a damp cloth around. I just used my fingers....they were red, but washed off pretty easily.



Allow 24 hours to fully dry and Voila!

very cool! as long as it doesn't rub off on a white T shirt lol
Lol, I sure hope not! It's been a few days and my fingers and clothes are all still OEM colors. The ink fully dyes fabric and dries in 24 hours.. no reason to think it would. But I will allert if that should happen

Update! Had the car detailed last week and they "renewed" the vinyl. This did remove some of the dye from the stitching. I have started to reapply tonight.
Also, I saw a few spots I missed cleaning up...it does stick very well to the leather too, so make sure to be thorough.
