    Has anyone dyed the cobra emblem stiching on their vert seat? Mine is faded to light grey.

    I used a fine point blk sharpe marker. It took about 30 min each seat. You need to just go on each thread and let it wick in slowly. Key is to take you time

    Looks much better. Nice tip about using a fine point black marker.

    Nice work!

    Another tip for vert owners... if you park your car with the top down, flip your sun visors forward. Otherwise the side exposed to the sun gets bleached and Ford stopped making these visors long ago.

    Yes! I need to get new visors or dye mine. Any aftermarket ones really close that you know of or proper dye to buy?

    I dyed the set in my first car. I just got black dye at Walmart. They turned out decently.

    As for buying replacements... there aren’t any available yet other than ones removed from other cars. I bought the last OEM set Ford had as a backup to store away. I can confirm there are no originals left. Maybe TMI will make some some day, but last I checked, they have not.
