As far as carpet...

I would buy the Katskinz leather recovering (under $1,000 if i remember right) that way you wont ever have it bleed or wear off.
I may look into that. I actually took one of the floor mats and just did a test run on that with the special paint I bought. I think its like $7 a can.
Painted the floor mat and after it dried for a day, i ran my hand across is pretty roughly, used my feet, kicked it around, scratched it and all but seems to hold up quite well! Nothing came off it off, didn't peal or flake.
Going to give it a few test runs But seems to be holding up. Can buy some paint for about $50.
Idk, im going to think about it a little more.
If your going to paint your dash like I did, TAKE YOUR TIME!
When it comes to the dash pieces, its all prep. The painting is the easy part!
I took a whole day sanding the gauge pillar and 2 days with the top dash piece. I wanted it to look nice and smooth! Used bully dog adhesion promoter, then the paint and clear coat, wet sanded the clear coat and the used a buffer and some polish making it shine!
