Originally posted by machine head I have a black top and want to change it to black.
Actually, my white top is stained. I have tried everything, even things that people have sworn by here. I looked at Autozone and they have "Upholstery Dye" in white for things like seats, carpet, etc. It's my last choice. I'm not sure what it will turn out like. You must remember that the top is subject to weather, sun, etc.

I am not sure what problem the exposure to weather would be. A properly prepped vinyl surface will absorb the dye and should not flake or rub off. It is dyed and deep penetrating not surface painted. I have seen plenty of suvs and jeeps out there with painted wheel covers that seem to be holding up pretty good.
I am about to dye my boot cover tan and I will post how well it comes out. The thing I am worried the most about is good even coverage because it is such a big piece . Since it is a boot cover it will not get subjected to a lot of rain unless I really screw up. If it starts to look crappy dye it some more.
I have a 98 so my roof is some kind of vinyl . Not sure about an fox but it probably isn't a form of cloth or canvas either. Either way case it would have to look better than stained.
The only ugly thing about my mustang is me.
