Default Carpet Dye Vs. Buying Black carpet

I have an EG with stinky grey carpet, i want black carpet. Would it be easier and more cost efficient to clean my carpet and bye it with a bottle of black dye? or should just buy someone elses?

looked up a local crafts store, they have dye for $5/tube. Probably would use 1-2 tubes.

Try RIT dyes. Not expensive but the result is not equal to what you think it will be. If you're trying to get black you'll only succeed in getting maybe a dark charcoal gray. My wife dyes fabrics all the time.

i dyed my grey carpet black using rit dye and a big plastic tub for my EG

the carpe came out pretty good, i used 2 bottles of rit, bought some cleaner and such to clean it before hand

the only bad part about the carpet is the plastic trim at the bottom of the door jamb is like held in by clips you will most likely break off, if those arent fixed your carpet will pull back around the door jamb

Checker Auto sells a carpet paint. I used it years ago on an older Hyundai (getting ready to sell), and it came out pretty damn nice!!!

Yea, thats the stuff. It works best of you REALLY clean the carpet out. I then laid the carpet out and did one light coat, let dry, ran my fingers through the fibers to break up the "crunchyness" and then applied another thin coat, and repeated several times. Carpet came out very nice and was not a big block of "crunchy" fibers...

1. OEM is best. Best quality, best fitment, best EVERYTHING.

2. Aftermarket doesn't fit right. They're only "generally" molded. Not Exact.

3. Aftermarket carpet doesn't have holes cut out already. So if you don't already have some of the OEM carpet laying around to use as a template. your screwed.

4. OEM is Best. and JDM is even better, because Japan kept almost all the cool high end goodies for themselves. That's a huge reason ppl go after and spend $$$ on jdm parts. There's no better quality.

5. you can find a good used carpet. it's possible.

6. I just Pm'd you to help you out.
