Default door panels and dash

I have black art leather seats in my lancer. My door panels are stock with fabric in them. Was wondering if i can change the door panels to match my seats.Please help guys.

My dash has also faded and I would like to make it look new or even fancy(lancer dash is boring and dull). How can I go about doing this? I have seen few threads where the dash has been custom painted. I got this done in my esteem but the paint sometimes would comes off when i touched it. So please provide solutions guys.

Would appreciate your help guys..

Stanley can get the dash painted too. There wont be any peeling issues if you use dupont, there is some special paint for the dash and similar vinyls. It is expensive though.

You can also get this done at Ravi's place near chennai central. He is basically a fibre worker but a jack of all trades. I have PMed you his number.

Else if you can get the car to coimbatore, Koyas or Kitup is the place to be.

Get the dash painted. I did the same and am happy with the outcome. It took a good deal of effort to get the job done properly at HM, but after a lot of trials and tribulations it came off well.
the paint will not peel off if the job is done well.
while you're at it, would suggest you get the door panels and gearbox console painted too, else it would look kinda odd.

And did i mention... do NOT get this done at HM! find a good workshop instead.
