changing seat color

I need to replace the Saleen seats in my Focus. They are faded as hell and the passenger seat is broken! I wanted to swap out the seats from my "part car," an 04 ZTS. The problem is that the color doesn't match. I want the seats to be red and black.

So my question is how would you recommend I dye the seats? Does anybody have a link or some advice for me? Thanks a ton guys.

Wouldn't recommend dying the seats - particularly on the seat cushion and seat back 'inset' area where you want the red part to be. I would suggest checking with a good auto upholstery outfit. They can maybe just replace the 'inset' area with some kind of matching fabric or leather. If you don't know of any place, get a referral from a large body shop (Where do they send work like that?)

This interests me since my drivers seat is broken and I am buying another seat from another 2005 and it might not match.
