Dying Door Panels?

I'd like to dye my 64 Pontiac door panels Dark Blue to match my new seats, They are dark and medium blue now.. Is this hard to do?

I have 63 GP door panels in there now and the pattern doesn't match the seat pattern...

Thank you,
Jeff

No it's not all that hard to do if you use a good product, But the main thing is to make real sure they are properly cleaned and wiped down and dry before you start . JMO

This is the perfect place to use SEM products. You can use aerosols and get great results. You will need to use their cleaner, (SEM soap), their vinyl prep, and possibly their adhesion promoter. It is easy, and if you take your time it will look great. Here's a link that tells you exactly how to do it: CLICK HERE Here's a place online to buy what you need: CLICK HERE

When you spray this stuff on, it gets absorbed into the vinyl, it doesn't sit on the surface. It will look like it came that way when you're done.

I used rattle can vinyl dye years ago on my mustang w/ no problems.

Some will color match vinyl dye.

Only concern would be removing all silicone.

I never use silicone products on my paint or vinyl.

Thanks for the responses guys...

Dan, I'm going to try that SEM kit... Can they get a close match to my seat vinyl color? It don't have to be perfect, I'm looking for a dark blue...

If you send Thad and Donna at Vinyl Pro a sample of the fabric, they can match it exactly and put it in aerosol cans for you. Call them first and tell them what you want. If you have spray equipment, they can mix a quart or whatever you need. That would be cheaper than custom aerosols. There should be a dark blue that you can use. Classic Coat navy, #17193, or Color Coat #15043 Shadow blue should both work.
