I have used this to re-color carpet and the result was tragic. I would think that it will not work due to all the fibers in the fabric, it will not cover well at all.

hey, i just did me a bench seat yesterday. i used some VH1 fabric dye ( sold at craigens , bout 9$) maroon, and it looks GREAT. i had a guy help as he rubbed the fibers right behind me spraying ) also, its not crunchy feeling like youd think after its dry. it feels close to the same as before you started. nor did any rub off on me,it is a dye. the seat looks like it was ALWAYS maroon

damn i just hit the link, and realized it was me! but i gotta say that VH1 stuff did sure work great. it was burgundy, not maroon ( had one to many when i posted that ) the fabric of the seat was tan as was the vinyl that bordered it , now is a nice burgundy

i painted the back rest of my golf cart years ago with regular rustoleum and its lasted forever. i just wiped the leather with acetone, sprayed it with the rustoleum and then scuffed it with a red scotch brite when i was done to make it look less shiney. its been about 4 or 5 years and its not showing nay signs of wearing off and it sees abuse... the golf carts got a 50hp sled motor in it.
