Bummer. Yeah, it took me several very light coats. I went from light grey to black, and yes, it does take quite a bit, especially on the fabric. In the end, you have to almost expect it to be more of a very dark charcoal. Because it'll look like a very rich black, but the moment something brushes against the black it'll look more gray. It takes some work to really break loose all the fibers and make it feel like fabric and not just spray paint.

Thanks Sean. Yea I have a bunch of spots that "wore" back to beige just from installation. I wish I had bought a gray interior to paint. I might rip it back down and paint it again because I have to touch up basically the entire thing.

If you decide to turn your car into a racer I will happily purchase your W8 light switch. Mine is acceptable looking just due to the fact that I am tall enough to not really see it

When I reinstalled mine, I did a fair amount of touching up while it was in place. Just ensure you mask things off really well if you go that route.

I was gonna spray it onto a sponge and then blot it on. The cans don't really work trying to spray upsidedown.
