Possible to dye CAB top???

Recommended Posts

My top has faded considerably to the point the point that my grey top looks khaki! Looks good against the Arena Red paint (burgandy) when the top is up, but......when it is down it clashes so bad with the grey read decklid and grey interior. What options doesn't anybody know of short of paying the $4K+ for a whole new top/window/etc. replacing just the canvas is out since they have to do the whole burning of the rear plastic window in. Possible to have it dyed? I was thinking black :) (2000 996 C2 CAB).

Have you treated the top recently? By that, I mean have you applied either Raggtop or the Porsche Cabriolet protectant within the past year or so?

In my past 2000 Boxster S (Grey top), I had some fading and noticed that after applying Raggtop it darkened back considerably close to what it was before. Might be worth the less than $20 and an hour's worth of time to try it.
