Default Interior

I have the cream color interior and want to replace it all with black.

What is the best way to get all the pieces black?

Start searching for either someone parting out a V or find a salvage yard. Other than that, you can spend big bucks going through g.m.

Black/Black is the only way the V should have come, sorry for your guys dealing with the color issues. Still don't understand the light/tan interiors on cars, unless you are driving a Bentley or an AM.

Sadly, even the black on black V's are 2 toned with that damn grey for the pillars and roof. I plan on black suede-ing that all too.

You might go to a interior shop and have them dye the pieces. I've never done it but that might be a better option if your interior is in good shape to begin with.

Its not that I don't like it but it is impossible for me to keep it clean . My black pants I work in rubs into my seats and I can't get it out . If I had it all black it would still look new.

Dying sounds like a good idea ,but I never seen it done.

Dye will only work on the headliner, trim and carpet. As far as the seats, I see Black seats on eBay all the time, front and rear.
