RE: painting my interior
I sprayed the interior of my old bmw from a gay cream color to camel. I think it was SEM, that rings a bell. Anyway I bought it at the bodyshop supply place that sells automotive paint n stuff. It worked well on the plastic, but the leather (already ~18yrs old and dry) looked ok but within a year it dried up, shrunk, split and was ruined.
I've never had luck dying leather, I think maybe because used leather has all kinds of crap and conditioners/oils etc in it.
I also sprayed the carpet, it turned out kinda ratty and was stiff like a used paintbrush.
I also painted an old Ford interior, (no real leather) dash/doors/headliner trim etc. From monkey vomit green to gloss black with regular spray paint(I think VHT). I was surprised how well it turned out, it looked perfect and brand new. (The cloth seats and carpet I replaced)
