Re: Re-dyed carpet

Re: Re-dyed carpet

Being clothing dye it should be the real deal.

Looks great, as black as it should be.

This stuff that she used seams to be good. I tried that Duplicolor rattle can interior/fabric dye to try to dye the tan carpet to black in my Neon. It looked good for about a week but it was stiff and started to rub away. I eventually just replaced the carpet when i completely overhauled the interior.

Re: Re-dyed carpet

Yes, you can dye tan to black. Tan is the optimal color to work with when dying. If you try to dye polyester, it will not take, but luckily, our interiors' carpet is made out of nylon, which is perfect for dying.

I recently had tan floormats dyed red to match my SIR interior. The stupid guy who dyed them had dyed the rear floormats to perfection, and got way too heavy on the front ones. What an idiot. You can see the pictures below. A place that does dying should only charge like $50. Shipping of course, is the headache you'll have to deal with for larger items.
