Advise on Vinyl / Plastic Dye

Hi friends of Benz,

To follow my previous post on repairing dashpad. I have decided that I will spray the dashboard with Vinyl / Plastic Dye as per suggestion by other members.

however, please give me advise:
1. What is the recommended brand for Vinyl / Plastic Dye?

2. Where can I get them? Can shop send the paint abroad (as I am living in Jakarta, Indonesia)?

3. Can Vinyl / Plastic Dye be colour matched?

Thank you all for the possible inputs!

Hi Josh,
I have heard good things about SEM Colourcoat. This web site does not let you put in websites directly, but a supplier in Brisbane Australia is Prestige Paint and Panel.
Web site basics are: prestigepaint com au/Sem_Custom html.
It has brochures on SEM products, and they show that it can be colour matched (well, in Brisbane anyway).

I had my finnie dash rebuilt and recovered last year and it cost around $550.
