Can I dye this SE Seat?

I looked up some old threads but not sure I found my answers...

This seat is comfy.... but not diggin' the color scheme.... could I dye it so it's all red?
OR even possible to make it Blue?? Blue would be the dream...

I don't think that material will dye the way you want it to. You could always try vinyl spray paint, you can get it at auto zone. Unless your on that seat 24/7 it should hold up ok...

I used vinyl paint. Turned out pretty good! The shade isn't quite what I wanted but it's close enough. Thanks for the tip!
