Mine was one of those bi-color versions: Black dash, black door trim piece and tan door pannels, carpets, seats, parcel shelf etc.

I bought used seats and a carpet set. For all other panels and the parcel shelf I used hardboard, vinyl and foam to produce my own replicas. The parcel shelf was a b**** since it constists of four pieces stapled together.

I covered the rear window trim pieces in vinyl as well. Looking back how much work it all ended up being I was stupid not to use leather and the good german wool carpet.

I doubt dying would be a lasting solution.
