Default Anyone RIT-DYE their monte's carpet?

has anyone done it before??
i was thinking of dying my carpet sometime in the near future because of it having some stubborn stains
also one of my rear mats has some small bleach stains on it lol
and plus i would like it to be darker
i dyed my Lightning's carpet before i sold it and it came out great! and it was a light gray color so im assuming my monte's would come out looking better since its a some-what dark color already
heres some pics of my L

color of factory carpet

after 15 boxes of rit-dye and 24 hours later of being soaked in a Large garbage can

Lookin good after installed

I knew someone who did it with a spray bottle. he just mixed it up and filled the sprayer a little at a time. It was a lighter carpet too and he went black. If it work that way for you I'd say do it again. It looked great in the truck by the way

Also I think skylark65 spray painted his carpet black.

Thanks
I just followed the procedure of soaking it in really hot water for at least a day
Supposably it works better with hot water?
Lol
I guess it worked great for me lol
