    Dyed the rear deck. Not a joyful experience. Took about 10 laps using RIT Dyemore graphite dye for synthetic materials. It seems you have to first spray the deck with vinegar which acts as an acid that helps the dye stick to the fibers. Also need to microwave the dye in the spray bottle to almost boiling. Spray it on and then brush. Repeat. Now more noticeable that my C-pillar headliner is gray.

    I had zero luck with RIT dye but I never considered an acid like vinegar to help. Ended up using a very messy fabric paint.

    Ya know? The fabric is kind of stiff even with the dye. I think at some point I just have to put new fabric and over it.

    What did you do for your ZHP/ BMW / MINI today? #2

    Everybodyís favorite cooling system step:
    Bleeding the system.

    I think I did it right. Sat at 95 Celsius for 4-5 minutes with hot air from the heater. Test drive tomorrow.

    Also, I realized I added too much pure coolant (because I canít read good), so I drained about 1.5L from the radiator screw(it drained right into the empty coolant jug) Iíll recycle that into my Miata. Theyíre way less picky!
