I thought I'd share my "Car Improvements" how-to's/tricks/ideas with all you car enthusiasts out there. I will try and update this thread as I go along working on various cars with different ways of improving the looks. Starting off with "Worn Out Mats" If you've got the original mats that came with the car from the dealership and they are looking a bit worn/worse for wear, instead of buying a new set or a cheap universal set, why not save some money and spend some time tidying them up. Start with removing them from the car and giving them a good hoover, then wash them using quality carpet cleaner (I tend to use AutoGlym Interior shampoo/Hi-Foam Interior Shampoo) and a clean damp micro-fibre cloth. You want to spray the carpet cleaner all over the mat and then scrub it in with the damp micro-fibre cloth turning it over when it absorbs the dirt, when the entire cloth is dirty wash under the tap, rinse and scrub again. Keep doing this until the cloth absorbs no more dirt then leave the mat to dry naturally. NOTE: Do not stick mats in the washing machine as this can deform them and rip off any badges that are on the mat Once dry, if the mat has any fraying on the edges, just cut these off to keep the edges looking neat. Now you’ll probably notice on the drivers mat the heel pad still looks dirty/discoloured like in the pic below. (Pic was taken after the mat was cleaned) Well if it does, I would suggest getting some Black Dye Spray, (I used AutoGlym Black Dye) then mask off the mat around the heel pad using masking tape. Then just spray the heel pad with the black dye using light coats. Don't soak it, it's best to spray a light coat letting it dry and add another coat until it looks evenly black all over the heel pad then leave the mat to dry before removing the masking tape. This is what it will look like when finished.
