Hello gents, here's another update from hot Tampa.... I received the seat fabric from OEMautofabric.com, and the stuff looks first-rate. So I took the seat out and drove it over to the upholstery shop, should have it back in a couple of weeks hopefully. Meanwhile, I wanted to do something with the carpet. It's in pretty good shape, but has some sun fading. So I asked around, and some guys said spray paint it ( or they called it "dyeing", which sounded too weird for me), and others mentioned RIT dye from the hardware store, but that sounded kinda messy, and would the water-based dye work on the carpet, which I assume is a synthetic. Well, it turns out that the Sharpie marker is good for more than just falsifying hurricane predictions!! Yes, after I cleaned the carpet last week, I went over the whole thing with a few Magnum Sharpie markers, total cost about 10 bucks, total time maybe an hour and a half. It looks great. The photos don't really do it justice. With the seat back it, it's gonna look brand new. Winning!
