Picky QUestion about new Sahara seats..Picky i know

anyone know of a good way to maybe dye the Sahara logo on the new 2013 cloth seats... i really like the way the Rubi logo is done in black stitch..not too fond of the Tan Sahara logo...

Black permanent marker? Just put tape on the seat surrounding the area that you want to color in. I am not sure if this will rub off or not, but I wouldn't think so as long as you let it set for 24 hours before driving it. I know I use this trick for black heels on my shoes and black fabric on my shoes. Works pretty well for that. Not sure about the seats though.....just a guess.

Good Luck!

That isn't picky...

I've thought about somehow changing the color myself. I think it is too yellowish...

Don't worry. Seats are the same reason I went with a Sport over the Sahara or Rubicon. I liked the texture of the Sport seats and configured how I wanted, I'm only missing the Nav and Heated seats from a Sahara. Didn't hurt that I saved several grand at the same time either.

Funny, I was thinking about this last night in preparation for the arrival of my '13. Glad I'm not the only one with OCD (or is it OCJD).

I was thinking fabric dye applied very carefully with something like a plastic model paint brush or similar.

This thread made me laugh. I was just thinking I wish the RUBICON logo on my seats were more visible

Fabric pen could work, I would just need to be careful since I have cloth seats, so it wouldn't wipe down like the leather in the video. Deciding if I want to be the guinea pig or wait one of you guys out, lol.

You can always get aftermarket leather or a nice trek armor or wet okole seat cover to cover em up.
