About the only more "bulk" stuff left is the SEM Color Coat. It is still available in colors and a white tinting base. Here is the product.....

That is just straight black, but you will see other colors listed across the top of that page. You might try shopping it out on Amazon as well. You really won't be seeing much in the way of "dye" based products for vinyls/ leathers anymore. Most of those products now have a flexible paint/finish on them, that is why you see colors cracking off the top surfaces as they wear.

I used to get a product from PPG That was sold as a Interior Vinyl dye when I did a Lot of Boat interior stuff. That was over 20 years ago have no idea if they still make it.

Yeah, me too. Bought it right at the counter with my paints. They had an entire rack of quarts of the stuff. I've not seen it in years and my PPG jobber doesn't have anything listed that I can remember.....

I found this on the PPG web sight

https://us.ppgrefinish.com/PPG-Refinish ... No-Problem

I don't recall if this was same stuff or not?, Stuff was good, would not rub off or crack.

I have a couple of car interiors I was wanting to redo in another color so I am interested in this product again myself, Its a lot cheaper than buying all new interior stuff that's for sure.
Especially when your just wanting to do a color change.

I remember doing up this one boat interior using 4 different colors took a while to do but turned out great owner was totally blown away.

Used to be called Master Tint, but yes, same system. Been a while since I bought the binder because I buy in 4 litre tin but I think less than half the price you mentioned. Smaller size may be more expensive? You don't need much - put it on quite thin and no primer needed so you can retain original texture.

I love it for hard plastics. This one I did in my own car about 7 years ago and it still looks exactly the same. Two coats using a small gun over the original plastic which was dark grey.
