If you use a good quality materials like Molecubond <a href="http://www.bryndana.com/" target="_blank">http://www.bryndana.com/</A> it is a permanent change of color on any Vinyl, Leather, ABS Plastic, PVC, Polycarbonate, Polypropylene, Polyurethane, Arcrylic, Lexan, Fiberglass, and Recycled Plastics, unless of course it gets a deep scratch. In that case the base color of the plastic will show through just like any metal part that gets a deep scratch.

I did a set of Pontiac buckets from gold to light blue. It covered very well and not only couldn't you tell they had been re-colored, I drove the car for a couple years and never noticed a crack or any problems at all.

I would stay away from the el-cheapo stuff at Kmart though.

I used some el cheap Walmart stuff on a set of dining room chair cushions in College. It lasted for 3 years without coming off untill I got rid of the set.

Hello there camino-man! I too jhave used the paint/die for changing the color of and interior. White to Black., Green to Baby Blue, Green to Black. The expensive stuff works great. I never tried Walmart's stuff, it may be fine too. The trick is to CLEAN every inch of the area to be color changed. Take your time and clean, Clean, CLEAN! A little goes a long way to cover your interior pieces, don't get to agressive or you'll get runs. You take your time and you will be very safisfied with the end result.
