I am changing my headliner out from a stock looking one to a more sporty color matched green. This, then makes the visors standout a little too much. My interior theme is mostly black with some green.
I am hoping to paint/dye or recover these visors in something black, but I don't know how to go about doing so. Is it possible to keep the mirrors aswell? Any help or suggestions are very much appreciated.
You might try some vinyl & fabric spray paint.
I used it when I painted my vinyl armrests & they look wonderful.
Haven't tried it on fabric, but for about $10 a can at the auto parts store, it might be worth a shot before you re-cover the visors.
I wouldn't even go near them with a can of dye. headliner cloth and cloth in general doesn't dye very well. normally ends up hard and crusty. in my opinion, nothing is worth dying. I would rather wrap a piece in new material. It's gonna hold up better, look better, and will probably be cheaper. that's just my opinion from doing this daily.
anyways, i've covered several sets of explorer visors. yes, you can keep the mirrors. what kind of material do you want? black headliner, suede? I would be willing to cover them for you if you wanted. pm me if you do.
here are a couple that i have done recently.
These have been covered in black suede. i'm getting ready to do mine soon in charcoal suede.
I had some of the dupli-color fabric and vinyl dye around, so i tried it on a small part of the visor and it works great. This stuff has worked great for me. I'd be suprised to find something it doesn't stick too.
