So this is what I was up to today. :)

From dirty old grey to black!

So I went ahead and bought two of these:

Found even the metal had a lot of dirt and crap, so.. I kind of drove to the car wash without bolting my seats or anything and well, I started braking and my girlfriend tilted back, lol.

Nice.

Does the bottle have a warning like 'Don't smoke for 6 months after application'?

Still smells, I'm leaving the windows cracked.

Nooo, lol.

It feels a little stiffer, but nothing horrible.

let them dry a day or two then take a medium firm nylon bristle brush and just dry scrub them a little. That will take care of any stiffness. (giggity)

I sprayed the back of my seats where it is carpeted in fabric die along with the hatch carpet and the head liner.

with the head linner it dried stiff so im just giong to upholster it in red sued. Screw dieing your OEM carpets. Rockauto.com has cut pile carpet you can get for the front that is molded to the floor pan. it takes alot of razor blades with trimming and cutting holes but well worth it when the project is finished. I got black cut pile carpet. if u want it to look OEM go this rout.
