Has anyone re-dyed their interior?

Just wondering if anyone has re-dyed their interior of their vehicle or has done a color change.

How long does it last is it permanent ? Asking because I want a permanent change not something that will fade off or when scratched show the old color.

What's involved?

hello
The wax will protect the exteriors of the vehicle, especially the paint life for a long time. It will not cause any harm to the vehicle for sure. However, it would be best to apply wax after a thorough body wash at a professional car grooming service. Car Grooming Singapore: Car Polish,Car Wash & Car Paint | Sierraglow

I've heard many good things about re dying seats and many interior panels. But I have also heard that it is kind of a hard process if you do it yourself and you need a lot of patience. You have to basically sand and strip the leather and then dye it back. The people I know that have done it say it is permanent and that if you do all the right things and processes when preparing for dying and the actual process of it that the color will last forever just as if it came from the factory that way. It all depends on if you want to do it yourself or have someone from say and upholstery shop do it. I hope that helped just a bit.
