how to spruce up a dull color vynl

I bought 15 yds of brown vynl. Once I got the material I decided it does not look that good. I need to some how change the visual impact of the brown.

I am thinking of having uhpolstry guy use black thread.

What do you think? any ideas.(the car is red)

Thanks Don

I think I would put the 15 yards of brown on E-Bay and buy a color you like.

It would look fine, but if the vinyl is dark brown, you probably wouldn't notice it very much.
