For all the Bestop(s)...

I'd like to know if anybody has tried that dye you can find at the supermarket. You just add it to the wash machine and woop dye doo. Back in Black.
*note I wil not be trying this any time soon...just wanted to know if it's been done.

That RIT dye would work on fabric not vinyl, and I don't think it is weatherproof. I used it on a green deck umbrella and it did not stay greener for very long. You can get vinyl top spray paint at the auto parts store; I have used that on car tops and it does work well.

^ as he said, find a high quality fabric paint. Just toss it on the jeep andtape around the painted areas and windows...should be good!
