Does the VHT coloring dye work well? I have the camel colored interior in my '81 Camaro and all the paneling is bleached from the sun. The interior is all there too. Is it worth saving or should I forget about the dye and go for new pieces?
I have dyed many interiors...Though I have never used the VHT bombs..You can buy a qrt of the same paint for what you pay for 3 cans..But you would need a spray gun...
But here are some recomendation..
#1..Make sure you clean all the pieces..prepsol works best..When you think it is clean..CLEAN IT AGAIN..You want to make sure you take all the silicon(sp?) off...(Paint and silicon don't mix)..
#2 Make sure you have good temp and that humidity is low..Those spray bombs seem to react poorly to high humidity(Whitish dull haze)
#3 last but most important with interior dyes the less you use the better...So a light coat let it flash and then another and that should be it...To much and it loses it flexibility and cracks..
