hey Ty just a thought, wait till summer to spray it. If the temp is too low the dye clogs up and makes a nasty mess. Or if possible heat the area you're doing it in. Winter doesn't make the best time to spray anything. VHT Vinyl dye is available at Coventrys, Repco, MALZ,(note - there are 2 types of black if thats your choice of colour) and try using Bumper paint for the plastics with a good primer. Its a bit more flexible then normal acryllic sprays etc so has more room for error when putting it all back together. I sprayed my plastics with K&H Bumper paint before christmas so far so good.

whats best thing to use to wash the vinyl?
thanks for your help guys i have a brutal missus and cant jump on the computer for long without her saying i dont spend enough time with her, so i tend to skim through everything asap! sorry chris if i missed parts haha!
http://www.birdsall-leather.com.au/ Check this site out mate. I have some of this stuff at home and it's better than vht but there is more work involved. I did mine in vht and it is holding up well after a year and a half but I think the product from the link above would be even better.
Ty, they are seatcovers from Ultimate Auto Trim in Melbourne. See the group buy on this forum run by Christan.
Microsuede is from Lyncraft's upholstery section.
Cut slightly bigger than needed, spray door pod and the reverse side of the microsuede with aerosol adhesive. Let dry for a few minutes until tacky, then smooth the microsuede over the area. Glue to the reverse side of the door pod with 5 minute Araldite, using clamps to hold. As you move around the door trim, use a blade to trim the microsuede and make notches and cuts to allow it to fit, and move the clamps.

i am just some people are using the vinyl paint on plastics and some are saying to use a primer and then paint, so im just getting my head around whats gonna look better and why people have there personal preferences etc, sorry i dont have the net for long mate, i tend to miss things, i do apologise but im pretty certain im ready ..
i saw how much of a nightmare the woodgrain is, im thinking of either buying vinyl trim that came in some soarers instead of the woodgrain or ill just spray and still leave the woodgrain
