Chrisvanoverjr is cool... so far.
Interior color change

So my door panel fabric is just about all the way peeled away, from life I guess. My question is, has anyone rewrapped the doors with any types of aftermarket materials? I am strongly leaning towards a carbon fiber material and also vinyl painting the panels black. They're tan now. Any tips or advice would greatly be appreciated.

My friend reupholstered his door panel inserts using cloth and upholstery glue.
The vinyl/rubber/plastic/whatever portions can probably be rewrapped easily enough. I think I’d probably go with vinyl wrap rather than paint.

Interior paints have usually not produced satisfactory results around here. Maybe products have improved, or maybe the the people doing the work didn’t do proper prep work (the key to good paint work.)

Another option is to source oem black interior parts. 91 SE sedan models with Solaris Silver paint had black interiors (with leather). 90-91 Phoenix Red DX coupes have black interiors (cloth... DX is base, so they also have crank windows, meaning there’s a hole for the crank on the panel.)

If just fabric insert is the problem, it can be replaced with about anything you want. If can find a set of SE leather inserts, it is an easy install. I used the SEM vinyl paint on mine and it has held up very well.

I was looking at member's upholstery job a while back on the forum, he said something about a thinner I think on the vinyl to make the paint stick better? If it's easier than that, I'd like to try it as well.

It is not a thinner, it is an adhesion promoter - sprays on like the coating, then you spray on the coating before the adhesion promoter dries.
