Looking for a good interior dye for vinyl console, door panels, kick panels and something for the steering wheel (the hard part) The interior is parchment. I saw it in the Mustangs Unlimited catalog but I am thinking that might be a little steep.

I've used the Plasti-Kote band from Pep Boys with pretty good results. I know there are some better ones out there but it works good if you clean the part real good first, and it's fairly cheap.

I have tried the Plasticoat dye from Pep Boys, its a great product but the color is not exactlly corretct, but i got it very close buy using three different collors. if i had to do it again, i would go with the Cougars Unlimited dye. My dash id drk blue with a bit of metal falke to the vynal. dk blue met flake over spray gave it a similar effect to the plasticoat dye. I have always like plasticoat products.
I am ready to put the dash back in now. the wiring is fixed, it starts with the key now, (Thanks to a schematic).

I dyed my dashpad and console blue along with some of the small trim. I got my die from Kens Cougars but I can't remember the price, I thought it was fair tough considering it is supposed to be the correct color.

I've gotten all my interior dye from the local Auto Paint distributor. They're able to match any color out there. It was a little more expensive (abount $12 a pint) But I didn't have to worry about color matching. Just make sure that the vinyl or plastic is CLEAN!! Armor All and the other protectants leave a teflon coating that has to be removed so the dye will penetrate properly. They have special cleaners for this but you could use soap and water or a little alcohol to clean. One more thing, I had a few plastic interior parts that were previously painted. I was told to used Easy Off Oven Cleaner (I used the low odor, cold formula)It removed the paint without damaging the plastic at all. Worked like a charm!
