    Painted seats?

    I was just wondering if anyone has painted their stock seats with vinyl paint? How does it hold up etc?

    I tried searching for it all this afternoon but to no avail.

    If you have please post pics and tell me how good it is.

    Thanks

    I had a seat with a good oem cover but it was faded and stained. I used the vinyl dye in a spray can from the autoparts store like you are suggesting. Havent ridden with it yet but the finish is great and you can not tell its been "painted". It looks like it came that way.This was a silver/grey seat.

    I used the same stuff.. it's duplicolor for when I was waiting on my seat cover I couldn't stand the silver on a black ski... It won't hold it. It looks great when you apply it.. but your butt wearing on the seat... scrubbs it right off , especially with salt water where it's gritty. Tryin to save yah a few bucks .

    I ended up getting my vxs seat dyed black and after 1 season no issues. I just bought a jet trim seat cover.
