Has anyone had any first hand experience using Dupli-Color to paint interior carpet?
I want to go black.

Try autozone. They have black carpet paint by duplicolor. Get a soft brush at the same time. You'll need to paint, dry, then brush and repaint. Plan on two cans minimum and airing out the car for a few hours. It does work fairly well. I only used one can on mine and went from gray to black.

So as I posted in that other thread, save your money and get replacement carpet in black. Paint will never hold up over time on carpet.

I agree it may not hold up over time, but it cost less than $10 a can. I removed the center console and masked everything else.
If I remove the carpet, I would just replace it in a color I want.
