    Recently picked up a '78 that was originally a tan-on-tan base model, however over the years one of its past owners decided to dye and paint the entire interior and exterior black. I like the outside just fine but I want a tan interior, it keeps things a little 'sunny' during these gloomy Northeast winters. Does anyone know of a way to remove the black dye from the vinyl seats/doors/dash and leave the original camel coloring intact? I know I can use just about any non plastic melting solvent on the other panels and be set, but I'm not sure how to proceed with the vinyl because it's a dye, not a paint... Would it be easier to just cheap out and triple dye back to the color I want?

    I'm do not see any feasible way to remove it all. Just prep it really well and redye it all. It's nothing but a really thin paint not really dye. Trying to remove it will be very very difficult and messy.
