Smile Mb-tex Dye???

Dear Friends,
I have tried to search here for a suitable dyeing method and products to dye/refresh my MB-TeX interior but I have not really been able to find anything. I hane heard about Leatherique but I think that product is only intended for leather and not the MB-TEX. Could someone please guide me. I have the light beige interior and would like to make it even lighter like the new light leather colors that are coming. Has anybody here ever done this before? Are there any methods that would allow the use of brush or sponge for the application of the dye? I plan on tackling this during the summer but would like to get ready for it now and start getting the products and as much info as possible.
My thanks in advance!

I suspect that dying your seats a lighter color will be next to impossible ... darker may be doable, but lighter seems like a no-can-do ... with leather or MB-tex.

bet you can...........http://www.sem.ws/product.php?product_id=242...also, see sure-coat, which you can brush or sponge. Use the crosslinker additive. Haven't used it myself(yet), but I've used color-coat and several of their other products. good stuff

As a vinyl based product, which is manufactured in the final color, there is no "dye" as in fabrics or hides, there are only flexible paints.
