Painting Upholstyery?

I am thinking of changing the color of part of my door panels, by using one of those upholstery spray paints.
Does any one know if one brand is better than the others? And how well do they all work?
Can areas be masked off?

Any experienced info is greatly appreciated!

At the risk of pandering for a specific product..........SEM products are state of the art for doing what you want. And......SEM is not a spray paint or a dye, it is a flexible coating that will not peel or flake off if the substrate is well prepared.

Dan,

You must have shares in SEM or own the company. Your right it is a good product and I would have recommended it too.

Yes, I recommend SEM products a lot. The reason is that I have had such good luck with them. Like I said before, I don't recommend anything I haven't used in my own business or on my own car. I see a lot of recommendations for Fusion paint by Krylon.........It may work great on hard plastic, but I can tell you from my own personal experience replacing a seat on a jet ski that was painted with Krylon (and never dried), it will not re-color vinyl fabric, and there is no way to match a specific color like you can with SEM, or other suppliers that can do the same thing. You are free to use any other product you want. All I am doing is reporting excellent results coloring or re-coloring whatever the members are trying to color. From now on, I will keep my opinions to myself.

I also recommend SEM products. I painted the dash pad and door panels on a previous car a Firethorn red and was very happy with the outcome.

Hey I'm glad you guy's are out there recomending products that work. I do not want to waste my time and money's on a product that's worthless. I get tired of going down blind alley's and not getting results.

I was going to use the Krylon on inside panels in a Miata roadster (black to tan) but I'll find the SEM stuff.

Your input is very helpful. TF
