How do you dye your interior?

I want to dye my interior like this one, but I dont know how to do it, or where to take it to if I want someone else to do it. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

I thought it was covered too, but I searched the install guides and modifications database and didnt find anything. I want to dye the steering wheel, dash, and door inserts if possible. I think the console was painted.

i dont think you can dye the steering wheel, i think those are overlays same with the door inserts. or you could go the more expensive route and buy a new steering wheel:

as for the dash, if we are thinking about the same thing, the 'dye' is in a spraypaint bottle and you use it the same way as paint. if that makes sense.

Where can you get a steering wheel like that, that looks really nice. I've seen plent of aftermarket steering wheels, but they are just too much for me. I like something that looks closer to the stock wheel, like the one in your pic.

That steering wheel is about $500.

Sparco makes a nice Red/Black one for about $200 plus the hub!

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

First, the car in the pic you posted has the 03+ innterior color, a dark grey. The parts in red are only ones that are painted. As for the wheel you either get the TRD, GTS leather, or stay stock. It is illegal to remove the air bag wheel.
