dyed leather from black to E46 M3 cinnamon

I have a blog going on in the picture gallery section of the forums, but thought I'd share it here too:

Parts needed:
2000 grit sandpaper
Leatherique dye (32oz) or Leatherique kit #4
Graco 3900 HVLP paint gun

Pictures are in this order:
1) Prep
2) 1st coat
3) 2nd coat
4) final coat

And yes, this will last for at least 2 years from my previous dye job with my E46 M3 before I traded it in
Yes, the surface feels like real leather
Yes, it retains the OEM leather smell
Yes, I would do it again if given to option
