    Hey there. Fantastic job on the interior. That’s probably the best looking job I’ve ever seen. I am extremely curious as to how you changed the color of the gray interior items however. I have a North Shore Blue Pearl CR-Z and I’m dying to change the interior to all black. I already have leather seats and a black armrest installed. Any quick pointers you could give me? Thanks!

      It’s a combination of Plasti-dip and Dupli-color Vinyl and Fabric Coating. Majority if Dupli-color like on the center console, pillars and headliner. Dupli-color adhesion promoter was also used on the vinyl parts (console and pillars) before vinyl and fabric coating.

        Thanks man! I actually just now noticed your reply…but it didn’t take me long to realize that Plasti-Dip would be fantastic in changing my interior console to black, as I have used it to change my stock alloy rims into black. I’ve had fantastic results with the Plasti-Dip, and this week I am slowly changing my interior. I have one question though: What did you use to change the entire ceiling fabric? Also, how did you manage to take the entire ceiling fabric out? Thanks!

        Headliner is Dupli-Color Vinyl and Fabric Coating

        Headliner is a pain to remove as you need to remove all the rear and side panels (because they overlap), the front sun visors and headliner controls. There are also two bolts in the rear under the panels and two plastic pins in the middle of the headliner (visible).

        That’s the easy part. The hard part is getting it out of the car. I ended up giving up and carefully bending it and removing it out the rear hatch. No guarantees as it’s not a small project. Good luck! Oh and let it dry for a couple weeks or you’ll gas yourself in your car as the fumes trapped in the small interior overwhelm you (no joke).

        Dang. That sounds easy to detach, but impossible to get out. I’m unsure if I’m willing to go to that much trouble. I’m afraid I’d mess something up. Regardless I finished finishing my entire console and grey panels black and it looks fantastic. I think I can live with the headliner for now. Thank you so much for the idea and help!
