Two years ago I changed the interior color of my seats, door panels, etc.
from beige to black using a vinyl stain that comes in a spray can. It is
still holding up except for a small amount of wear on the door cap where my
arm is always resting. It took about 4 cans of stain to do the job. Caution;
it contains toluene and the fumes will get you higher than a kite.
