I picked up some more LS seats to go in my EJ8. Only problem is that they were tan...as you all know the interior color of EJ8's is black and mostly grey...no tan. I wanted black seats anyway. I went and picked up some Dupli Color fabric paint and painted one of my seats. I put tons of coats where I sit and lean back so that it would have a lot less chance of fading. Anyway, it looks great! Looks like it came from the factory like that. I'll get a before and after picture really soon (I still have one of them unpainted). They are a little stiff right now but are getting softer every time I sit in it. By the way, they're DA seats.

haha well mines not to bad. I've got a friend that did his carpet and it's nice. It's been done for a long time now. His other friend did his seats and said they looked really good and softened up after like a couple days of driving.

<-- almost 2 years painted dash and every other trim piece you can think of. Shit holds up good if you prep it right.

i was wondering about this stuff...so how come some people think it gets stiff and others don't? is there prepping involved that people are omitting?

prep depends on what you are painting all i painted was plastic pieces so i washed them with a de greaser and gave them a rub down with rubbin alchi.

i think it depends on the fabric u are painting for stiffness
