    door panels -color change?

    I have some Charcoal color door panels and would like them to be black,is there a particular type of die or specialized paint I can use to do it so it will not look like a rattle can?
    Thanks in advance...BH

    I know Gatecrasher did a really clean two tone on his interior, but I don't remember what he used. But it was a few years back so he would be good to ask to see how well it has held up.

    96-99 door panels were true black. I'm trying to locate some myself.

    The vinyl on the doors is not pores enough to due. The Duplicolor rattle can dye sprays on nice but I wouldn't use it only anything that comes in constant contact with your hands. It wears down and then looks bad. I did my rear upper panels and pillar covers and they have held up for a couple years now.

    I found wiping mmine with hasoline really helped the paint adhere to the vinyl, I used a Duplicolor fabric and vinyl dye that time. I've also used the product that Stealthee mentioned and it turned out very well.
