Looking for sprayable interior dyes

I had saved a web address for a company who makes interior dyes for Mercedes in the OEM colors. I need to spray an armrest parchment and can't find the link to save me. I have the link to SEM sprayable dyes but they are not OEM colors. Does anyone know where to find this? I read that paint shops can mix a flexable paint for vinyl to match factory specs. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks for your input, Andy

surfing and noticed your post re: leather dye. You probably have found it by now but I just used Color Plus, cleaner, softener and dye and it worked great. they can match any color plus have std MB colors readily available.

I went online to world upholstey. They have good solvent and spray on dye (which doesn't run easily like regular spray paint). Not cheap, but worked very well.

Leatherique - I had read some positive posts on this item, but looking at the archives today, I see some negatives...

I am in the same boat, I need to repaint the center arm rest, and fill the cracks / dye the outer edge of the driver's seat ... I am about to just take it to an uphulstry shop and let them do it and warranty it

you really should check out the color plus web site. I did my drivers seat and the center armrest on my 380SE and they turned out great. You use a brush to apply the color...no brush marks and the finish is like new. I had worn marks on the drivers side bolster and small rubbed or worn marks on the center arm rest. The color I used was their standard MB grey which matched virtually perfect. It is slightly darker but considering my car is 20 years old and I did not send them a small swatch to match, the color was fine. Besides how are you going to get a small piece to send them to match unless it is from under the seat which will be darker anyhow since it has not been exposed for 20 years.

Leatherique has stood the test of time

Hello, I have used Leatherique dye on one of my cars 9 years ago and here's a summary of results:

Watebased, easy to apply, spray and clean-up
Factory color matching available, if not send them a swath and they will custom match to your color
The product works, I changed a Malberry (red wine) interior to a light tan with 3 spay coats of Leatherique, cover beautifully and 9 years later = 55K miles and still looks like new.

Excellent product and wear characteristics.
