White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

HI!!!
I will be receiving my 2012 Overland 4x4 in silver metallic with black interior and all the skid plates added by accessories in just about 10 days it is in customs (Dominican Republic).

I read somewhere that there was a person who painted in some way the edge of the seats (from white/grey) to black. Also the dashboard.
I really want to do this because I don’t like the black seating with the white/grey edging.

I read one person did it with a sharpie pen and another with shoe cleaner.
What are your thoughts on how can this be done?

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

^I'd be really careful using a Sharpie for anything larger than a touch up spot. You could end up making it look really crappy with that much surface area being covered if the black color or tone was off just a hair, plus chances are you'd have a really hard time with a clean application.

Put the gun down, back away, no one will get hurt.

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

Sounds like you'll end up with a mess in your brand new Jeep if you go with one of those options! IMO

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

That has to be one of the most idiotic ideas I’ve ever heard…good luck.

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

I don't see a sharpie or shoe polish working at all. My guess would be a textile stain - but I don't know if that would even work. I'm sure the piping is vinyl and may not accept a stain. Actually, I am fairly sure it won't. In that case I think your only option is having an upholstery shop redo all the seams with black piping (or none). I think if you attempt a sharpie you're nuts.

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

i just read in another forum that 2 people did that.
and i would like to see how can this be done, of course i dont like any of the two ideas i mentioned but those are what i read.
i am completely aware that a sharpie or shoe polish must damage or wont do a good job, but i am just wondering if there is a way to do this that is simple and not expensive.
IF NOT I WILL DO ANYTHING...BELIEVE ME THIS IS MY FIRST NEW CAR AND I WANT IT NEW FOREVER.
i am just saying that i would like to have the stitching black instead of white/grey because o dont like the contrast.

DOES EVERYONE LIKES THE BLACK LEATHER INTERIOR WITH WHITE/GREY STICH?

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

My first reaction was that I prefer black edging, but I changed my mind some time ago and really like the silver/gray contrast edging on the black seats, and dash.

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

Why not just get a loaded Limited if the piping bothers you that much?

Yes, it is spectacular and looks like this:






You've been fairly warned, if you take a Sharpie to your brand new world-class interior, it will look like this:

Re: White/Grey seat Edges Painted Black

The person who said they changed the color of the dash stitching used a Sharpie DYE marker or something like that, not a regular sharpie.
