    SEM dye seems to be well thought of.

    Dyed my dash no problem. Dyed my kickpanels too(down by the footwells) and it's scraping off a bit. But I did all of them with NO prep, and I think that's the problem. I think that, like paint, the dye itself isn't as important as the prep. And the prep is not just washing whatever it is. I saw a website somewhere that detailed the prep needed for dying vinyl, plastics and stuff, I think it was SEM's website. They have a whole line of prep stuff in addition to the dye.
