Have you though about changing it, it might be time if it's the original carpet from the factory.

Yea all of the bolted down stuff will have to be unbolted, it's what takes up most of the time for the install. Putting the carpet down is the easy part.

have never dyed shag carpet but have dyed automotive carpet used Ritz dye and took faded out carpet and dyed it a shade darker.
did this on an old truck i got running for a former boss of mine he though i replaced the carpet and was mad at first told what i did as an experiment since his carpet was faded could not hurt it he liked it so well left in the truck.
always try an unseen spot first to see if will even take dye if it works a spray bottle and lots of rags/paper towels to blot excess then let dry completely .
good luck if you try this let us know how it comes out

So u mix it in a spray bottle. Spray floor and blot excess off? Seems pretty easy. Id tear it out but it goes up the walls in the cab ans kick boards in the coach
