i was going to do a carpet i got . after looking into the carpet and what its made of i came to a blank . problem is this carpet is self coloured (its actually plasic strands already coloured ) dye's cant penetrate it like wool so the dye wont stick to well , if at all . there are dye's on ebay that claim to be able to do it , this i doubt . autoglym also make one , looks more llike spray paint to me than dye . swapped my carpet in the end , would have been a shame to reck it when my mate could use it the colour it was .

i painted mine with whatever i could find LOL: most of it was a spare tin of stoneguard, the rest is just satin black. I did a test patch then took it out to spray it. Its gone a bit hard and im not sure how it'll cope having feet on it all the time but ive got mats in the front so really its just so the bits you can seel look better
