[DML] Re: Dash restoration

Yes, the drawback to a "dye job" is that you color the stitching. My
suggestion was not for those who would consider entering in a concours
competition. A dye job is no replacement for damaged pieces. Chances
are if you have sun-damaged vinyl you need a lot more than just some
dye on your vinyl. As with any of my advice it is always up to the
reader to determine if it is useful, safe, and applicable to their
situation. One of the great things about about this on-line forum is
it's self-correcting abilities. Misinformation or missing information
usually gets pointed out quickly. On the subject of using the dye, I
have used the dye on many cars (not just Deloreans) and it is a pretty
good alternative to replacing interior parts. I have even changed
colors but scratching will allow the underlying color to show through.
I suppose if it is that important to save a piece with stiching in it
the stitching can be removed and replaced after dying the part.
