Leather Dye Colours

Jorge-   

I'm getting well ahead of myself now but I just want to ask your thoughts.

Looking at a car with grey leather, I hate grey leather and want to dye it. Looking on bespoke leathering there are endless options.

Car itself is Dolphin Grey. What colour interior would match?

Options are,

Black (obviously)

Lotus White

Cinnamon

Some kind of red

Any better suggestions? Not a fan of grey/blue/greens etc but tan or champagne may also be an option.

Pictures to be included please

I think black would work well with dolphin grey but a black interior is boring IMO, almost all cars have a black interior.

White or red might work but I think a photoshop showing what it could look like should be made first.

Would do it to look like this, black top half of dash, coloured lower.

I reckon black is your best bet. I'm not a fan of grey interiors either!

I think if I was to go to the trouble of dying, I may as well do something a bit different. Black I could wait for one to come up for sale instead?

That looks pretty sweet to me.

I would go for black or red - not a fan of light interiors on silver or grey cars -- although not sure HOW light dolphin grey is, so may be ok. Just my opinion.

Which red, a deeper red like the cardinal red, or something brighter like the newer imola reds?

Lotus white or a cream leather does not suit Dophin Grey. Black is safe option although a little boring. I'd go with a dark red like an Oxblood red which will compliment the the dophin grey perfectly.

The one I posted, Cardinal, is the original red from E24s.

That really didn't work.

is the dye strong enough to recolour though? or is that for a renovation of same colour stuff?

You have grey too don't you? Would have thought any colour would probably dye greys as it is so neutral.

yeah its just to make sure the dye is stong enough to actually redye, rather than being designed to just refresh the same existing colour.
