Has any one used interior vinyl paint like Colorbond or Color Coat? Thinking of changing the color of the vinyl door inserts on my 2013. It won’t get the wear that a seat would, though the companies claim they’ll hold up, so I’m tempted to try.
I don’t like the idea of the hard plastic Coverlay inserts or the cost and effort of having them recovered in leather or vinyl.

Get the coverlays and paint them. I went with oem color coverlays and haven’t had to mess with them since. They were professionally repaired once with the vinyl and just don’t hold up in Texas.

I decided to bite the bullet and give the vinyl paint/dye approach a try. I think it came out great.

I have been interested in their dash covers for several years but have not been able to see one in person or get reliable feedback from someone… not sure if it looks like a cheap add-on?

I used Color Coat, a similar product by SEM with a good reputation. I could not find Colorbond locally and shipping was $15. I found Color Coat at a local car detailing supply house.
