sacrifice a couple of goats in your car - use their blood and entrails to "customize" interior.

record it - post on youtube - link it here for us to see.

First you do not paint Leather, it is actually a dye, and going light to dark it not to much of an issue, but going dark to light will not turn out.

Even if you did it you would not be happy with the results, it will required touch ups all the time since the dye over the original never adheres as well once the leather has been dyed once.

Your out of luck only options are lame covers or find someone to swap the seats with or upgrade seats/ trim.

You could sell your car and look for another with red leather... but what a hassle.

Sorry those are your only options I hope you do not paint or plasti dip your seats, you will regret/ depreciate the cars value.

Blood is the best way to go. Just collect your gf's, mom's, sisters's, female friend's used tampons and pads and slowly smudge it on the seat and let dry. Repeat to achieve desired results. Its the cheapest method and best if the blood is somewhat fresh. Don't forget to thank us and show pics when it's done.

I've had 3 cars with red leather and one with blue. Gotta jazz up that interior.

Charger interior has come a long way. SRT line across the board has exceptional interiors from what they used to be, and that red is just incredible.
