    Was going to sell them, then I realized I'll just keep them so I decided to Dye them. This has been done by lots of car people around the internet so I gave it a try. I let them "marinate" for like 3 days in Rit black dye and washed them out today... here is the finished product!

    That turned out amazing. Do you think it will work from grey to tan? I think that's pushing it. Never mind. I doubt it would work.

    I've got the original black LSC mats in mine (excellent shape), and yours look identical. Good job!

    Now that I'm seeing these on a bigger screen than the picture message, those do look real good Dan. Way better than what you started out with.

    Mats

    Those look great and for $5 WOW. I just bought a tan set, a little different and cost a WHOOOOLE lot more. I was lucky to find them and the right color for my car.
