Last year I bought some lotus seats and they are navy blue. My car is laguna blue, so they kinda clash. Because the leather on the seats is good and a retrim is a fortune, that option isn't cost efficient. So I'm looking at dyeing them. I don't want to go to black seats as that's plain and boring, so I'm considering either a dark oxblood colour or a darkish brown. Could someone please have a go at seeing what it looks like with the seats and crash pads, and maybe the steering wheel done in those two colours using the images below? I'll pay you in reacharounds and pie.

You cant dye something a lighter colour, if you tried to go red with the blue it would come out purple, with the crash pads you can expect a browny black,

 

I'd say it would be impossible to get to the colour you want, and even if you did nothing would match :(

The stuff is from furniture clinic, you'll have to Google it as I can't grab a link at the moment. It's about 40 quid for a small kit. Here's a screenshot of someone who's done black to oxblood before...

I'm not quite sure that would look too great on the inside, but more importantly I doubt I could get a dye in a close match!
