Dyed my soft top from gray to black. Used Duplicolor vinyl paint. Washed it with soap and water, wiped it down with paint prep, taped off the windows, and sprayed it black. Three coats took six cans. It looks like a new top, but a heck of a lot cheaper! I was scared to try this, but i did a lot of research and learned that just like painting anything, the most important part is the prep work. It looks awesome, and I would recommend it.
Thanks for the kind words, I enjoy doing stuff like this just for fun. To answer your question; I actually wouldn't mind in the slightest. Just PM me if you're serious at all and we can discuss more. I have a bunch of pics I can show you of the build even though I'm not totally finished with the tire carrier at this point (I'm real close ).
I'm trying to finish soon so I can move-on to some rocker guard/side steps I have in mind...as well as safari-style-tubed half doors. There's just not a whole bunch of aftermarket items for the cj5 as the others have available...at least in my searching.
Ha! It's kinda like a.....solderer, one who solders.....sort of.

And then there's this. In my world of Toyota mine cars, Hiluxes, Cruisers and gay Prados all with HiViz stripes down the side here, finally is someone who's man enough to put a REAL vehicle out there, my dream ute:
