Door panel top has faded.

Does anyone have a cure for the top of the door panel when it fades? I tried "Forever Black" but it didn't do much. It looked good when it was wet but once it dried it was back to the way it was.

I wouldn't mind replacing it if I could find a guaranteed non-faded one.

I had the same problem with mine. The tops of my panels were almost white. I purchased a vinyl / leather dye and ended up recoating my entire interior. Be careful because it can be quite messy and two coats should do it letting a day in between to dry. Mine came out great and it doesn't rub off! the panels look like new. I did mine while i had the inserts off being recovered so it was a bit earier that way.

Awesome, I will try that. I have to replace the door speakers soon so I will have the panels off already.

Thanks!

Make sure you are wearing gloves and don't get it on anything that you don't want to be black. Also, give them a good scrubbing with alcohol to remove any oils or grime before you start. I think you will be impressed with the results!
