I provided the link with all the details your seeking.. just above the pic.

That actually looks pretty good. I want your seats BTW...

I sprayed the headliner (vinyl) in my VW years ago, was white and the rest of the interior was black. The vinyl dye came in a spray can, was about 12 bucks (back in like 1993) and worked like a hot dam. It was not shiny, and looked 100% stock...after a year is looked as good as day 1.

Wish I could remember the brand?

SEM makes some good carpet dyes as does carbrite, automagic, and malco those last three are automotive detailing vendors. SEM is usually sold by autobody supply stores. Hope that helps some

while you spent all that time on the carpet, did you pull it up and take a look under? I would spend time with the paint there first, then worry about the color

Going rubber in mine eventually, after a major floor overhaul.

Carpet 2 Years Later...

I thought I'd revisit this topic two years after I originally painted my carpet. In high traffic areas, such as the drivers side - the paint has faded considerably.

I also painted my dash, which in some areas has bubbled up in the heat. Im having to replace some of my dash components because of this. If I were to do it over again, I would simply replace the carpet with new carpet. I paid about the same amount in spray paint that it would have cost to by a new carpet mold. Im planning on replacing the carpet entirely probably in the next year.

As far as painting the vinyl and paneling of the car, be very careful not to over spray what you are painting. If you do, it will likely bubble, chip, or not look consistent.

In some ways it was good, and in other ways bad. Live and learn I guess...

Why not just remove your carpet and bed line the inside?

I wouldn't remove the carpet and spray it with bedliner because of road noise and insulation. My XJ doesn't have a headliner and that alone makes insulation of heat and cold air very difficult. If you don't mind the noise and freezing or sweating your butt off, go for it...

Jeep heats up just fine in the winter and that's without any drain plugs in.
And the ac keeps it freezing in 90f weather.
No carpet or sound deader, just u-pol raptor and some primer.
Noise barely increased but that's not to say it hasn't increased at all, it just doesn't bother me at all and i like a quiet ride.
