Sam is right on. SEM products are easy to use, and give you excellent results, just follow the directions on the SEM website. What you need comes in a rattle can, either Color Coat aerosols, or Classic Coat aerosols.

I used a can of gray on a metallic blue interior 10 years ago. This stuff is called "Product 40" from England and it brushes on. Great product.!

If you want to brush it on, SEM Color Coat and Sure Coat come in other containers other than aerosols and can be applied that way.

I wouldn't want to do an entire interior that way, but selected parts that are in excellent condition like door panels, hard plastic trim, and padded dashes would be perfect to change color on. Remember, the color won't improve wear, only make it a different color.

SEM is good stuff. But like Dan2Lake stated, I would not do a complete interior that way, but most interior components today are only molded in just a couple of colors and it is getting harder and harder to order a plastic component that is not beige or gray so it needs to be dyed. You can get dye in quart cans that is equivelent to the rattle can. But for areas that would have a lot of use / abuse as in a seat, I would have it reupholstered. For a panel that does not have someone sliding around on it or sees limited touching, then the spray should last for years.
