Default How to paint your seats

http://photobucket.com/albums/b22/reconracer

Duplicolor makes a vinyl and fabric paint. Mask around area you want to avoid overspray, spray 2 light coats every 15 for a total of 6 light coats. Let try for an hour and a half

Arrow step by step instructions and other jiberish

paint hasnt rubbed off on my clothes yet and it held up when i sat in there with wet shorts from the swimming pool, the lifetime of the paint on there don't know, but im getting 4 sparco's put in there anyhow. The seats stiffened up a little bit, kinda have that brand new feel when you pull it off the dealership lot. No my covers arent painted yet, they will be done on the 1st when my the rest of my car gets fixed from the hit and run, btw the covers were free anyhow.

If you were serious bout step by step instructions here you go.

Find yourself some duplicolor vinyl & fabric paint, couple rolls of painters tape (get some thin tape and wide tape 2 of each should do) (wal-mart, napa, autozone, schucks auto carry it) you'll need about 6 cans.

Vaccuum your seats if any stains use some stain remover. Make things easier remove seats from car.

Tape off seats first with thin roll of painters tape for the part you are painting then use the wider roll to cover more area to prevent overspray.

Start the painting process use 2 light coats every 15 minutes for a total of six light coats. Let dry for 2 hours before you sit on them to be on the safe side.

This is how I painted my seats, take your time masking off the seats thats one of the most important steps

no offence, but anyone who thinks that looks good needs to look again. The color is splotchy, TONS of over spray on the rear seats. You can tell they where rattle canned, and it looks cheap.









Sorry.
