The head liner goes down to the upholstery shop here in about 2 hrs to get a black cloth onto it. As far as the parts i have painted, i have scuffed them, primed them, painted them black and then sprayed a protective/ superglue type protector for a finish. What do you think?
I will post more pics when it is all finished up.

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Awesome you did a great job! I did the same to mine and it looks sooo much better. Probably one of the easiest/cheapest mods that i've ever done. i also dyed the headliner myself and after a dozen or so coats i was finially happy with the way it came out.

yeah, i'm so close to going tan... we had a 91 mercedes 190E that was bright red with a light creamy tan interior, it was so pretty.

Re: Black interior..............what do you think? (davedarr)

you totally read my mind with the painting of the liners, what steps and products did u use to do it? I tested with the rear trunk piece and some sort of spray paint and it didn't turn out half bad but I don't know if it will last. Looks great man

Call your local automotive paint store...they can recommend what paint to use. Make sure you read my post for what all you need to do. The scuffing, priming ect....

Re: Black interior..............what do you think? (davedarr)

I, for one, would rather have a black interior than a tan one. I can't stand my beaver interior which is why I've been [slowly] swapping in black parts.
The paint looks glossy -- is it? I would recommend a flat or (at most) a satin finish.
Make sure you take the same before/after pics http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Black interior..............what do you think? (davedarr)

I am actually doing the same thing right now (from the ugly tan). Using VHT DYE ... so far so good. First day it looks glossy secong day it looks perfect. Looks totally factory it is NICE. I did my dash and front doors yesterday and it looks HOT. Easy and Cheap mod ($5 a can). 4 cans and I did the center console, dash, and doors. This product is also a lot more forgiving than paint since it is a dye if you do get some overspray there are no drips and it soaks in within 5-10 minutes.
