    VERY NICE... the ZL1 will be red stitching when I get my Orange one. I'll try the same thing.

    How long did that take you?

        It only took 2 hours to do the whole interior. one of the guys on the vette forum had done it, even got the pen info from his post, and it took me the same amount of time.

        I found the exact same dye pen on Amazon, its a "FabricMate" brand dye marker pen's. I bought two to be on the safe side. they are $9.99 a piece. what you do is using the pen, you color the stitching and about every 6" you stop and wipe up the excess off of the leather. piece of cake. I did mine in the afternoon and I wasn't going anywhere afterwards so it had lots of time to dry afterwards.

            I think Kristin has done this to her car the same way some years ago.

              I believe your right... it broke my heart, along with a lot of other people, when she lost it because of Harvey.

                I saw it online 3 months later being auctioned off, while looking for mine.

                  Excellent... I'll have to change my red stitching to orange. But then will need to do something with the red seat belts.

                    that will be a bit trickier. its easy to dye WHITE to another color but to get RED to Orange may take another approach. you may need to dye the red with yellow to achieve orange. and you may need to experiment with different shades of yellow to get the right shade of orange.
