I'm probably going to try on the rear door cards as they are less noticeable if it doesnt work the best and can be replaced fairly cheap. [email protected] Developments has a set of 4 spec C door cards instock. Quoted me £118 delivered to N.I but out of budget atm

I think ill start with Door Cards, Then Sun Visors. If all goes good then headliner then tackle the interior carpets. Think 5L should do it all.

Finished dying my doorcards yesterday, used the product in your link above
it works well with a spray, I removed the door cards so as to limit any possibility
Of over spray on the white body work.

The first coat dried a little light so done another and now they seem good to me so
I’m happy

Mine still hasn't arrived, bought from ebay seller and delivery to norther Ireland is crappy .

The 2 coats looks good on the door cards. How much of the 500ml bottle did you use on all 4?

I'll be wanting to go all out eventually (Headline, sun visors and carpets. Can pick up 5L for £40 which should do it all
