Did you wash out the excess RIT dye?
If not, it can run onto something else when it gets wet again.
I've had new denim stain my light colored leather, before they were repeated washings.
Looks good otherwise.
After posting on some of this, I was thinking one of those hand held carpet cleaning attachments that spray cleaning agent and apply vacuum to pick up fluid might be a DIY to pro cleaning for door panels etc. It's what one does in the house. I've cleaned my carpets that way and they come out nice but they're not 70 years old. They 'oriental' rug cleaners deal with age and old dyes.
I have a floor dryer that I use on the boat - no heat. Fairly inexpensive at the chinese tool takeouts.
From my view, I don't see much sense if a piece of new carpet would do the same... I put new in the Cad but floors have to be sound/watertight..
