Two-Tone Seats?

Anyone have any experience using Leather paint/dye to Two-Tone interior seats? I'd love to add a silver insert on the seats, but dont want it to look like a pre-schooler did it. Any experience thoughts appreciated.

Thinking of using something like this:

I have not seen that used, but I would be very skeptical about it's results.

I'm not sure it's worth the risk. It could turn into a big mess. Or turn out good at first and then later on start to crack. Just buy some 2-tone seats on e-bay if you want that style so bad. They are out there. By the way, that paint is also sold through J.C.Whitney automotive.

Here is the link, there is a customer review on there and it does sound rather promising. http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/tf-Browse/s-10101/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2010283/p-2010283/N-111+10202+600016873/c-10102

I did it about 4 years ago...

... but I used Leather Magic instead.

Initially I wanted just to repair wear and scuff marks and later it turned into a whole two-toning project.
My car was originally Graphite Gray leather, now, look for yourself...





Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

I have an extra set of Savannah Beige seats that I would give to someone for just shipping, the drivers seat as 150k miles on it and has a rip in the seat portion the passenger seat has a few scuffs but is perfect otherwise. If someone wants to test these let me know. As I said they are free just pay shipping.

Seats are spoken for.
