Little interior paint experiment

I am going to get a new drivers seat to replace my now broken one and I am going to try Duplicolor Fabric pain on it and I figure if it sucks its a trash seat so i have nothing to lose and if its great i'll consider using it on my interior. Either way I will have new pictures up once this is completed. I will keep ya updated.

My only wonder is if it might fade in an ugly way with all the butts sitting and sliding across it. But if you have good results that's awesome; way cheaper than custom upholstry!! =)

Loved the result, but it does wear and fade pretty quickly......I'm looking for SVT seats.

Why the hell would you want paint rubbing off of your seats onto your clothing?
