    Ok can anyone remember who it was who was dyeing their roof lining recently on this forum? and anyone had experience with this and what to use, is the valeting dye you see on ebay upto the job?

    i might strip it all out and dye it all, then spray all the bits black ?

    thanks

    there was an episode of Wheeler Dealers where Mike Brewer sprayed the rear parcel shelf of a Peugeot 205 GTI and that looked the business.

    why not get a piece of damaged headlining from a car that's been written off and have a play?

    best of luck, let us know how you get on!

    thanks for feedback, there was defo somone recently on here who had a roof lining but he said it looked grey so dyed it black with a liquid dye and brush. trouble is what do you spray the sun visors and plastics with as visors are flexible and normal plate would crack?
