    If I have gray carpet, can I paint it red and still have it look good? Or does it only work as a "touch-up"?

    As far as I know you will want to use rit-dye(spelling?) for the best,longest lasting results on carpets, but I could be wrong. I'd think the spray paint would be more of a touch up then color change method.

    I should probably stop skimming through these DIY's.. I didn't catch the "only one coat of primer" the first time around so my passenger side panel looks retarded. I'll sand it down and redo it later.
    If you can follow instructions, this DIY is great! The rest of us (me) should read a little more careful next time.:hitlol:

    Bump for reloading pictures and update pictures when I repainted it for the first time since 2006, in 2013. :D

    How is everything holding up? Thought about doing some of this on my Civic currently. Mostly thinking about the carpet, then the fabric on the door panels and arm rest, also the pillar pieces and headliner to darken everything a bit.

    *UPDATE*

    Nov. 2014 - I had sold my 92 gsr white hatchie. The interior had it's final touch up in May 2013 since the first time I did it in May 2006 when I originally made this thread. FB_IMG_1433253397714.jpg
