Carpet/Door panel dying

Recommended Posts


I recently dyed my carpet in my car. I followed the directions which said to clean the carpet thoroughly and then vacuum it. I let it sit until it dried . Then I applied thin coats onto the carpet evenly letting it dry after each coat. After three weeks i went to feel the carpet and it was alittle stiff to the touch. I figured I would shampoo it and that it would make it looser. Well it got looser but the color bled right out.. The carpet is now like a blk/greyish color. What is the deal with that? Then the same paint i used for the door panel which is calls for and the paint seems to be really sensitive and if you scratch,bump, or rub it the paint comes right off. The prep on the door panel I used a wipe that took all oils,grease,armor all, or anything, got completely stripped. Yet is still seems to come right off.. What is the deal? Any one have an idea what is going on? This is the product I used.. http://www.detailyourcar.com/vinyl-plastic-carpet-dye-p-258.html

Pop in some detailing forum or something and contact the manufacturer.. I've always been very dubious of these product( though I've seen them work well). THe problem is the materials used in car interiors is not easy yo get a paint to stick to (on a molecular level).
