Faded dash & soft tops

Anyone ever dye their soft top or dash?

I have a bikini top & tonneau cover that are in great shape, just really faded. I'd hate to replace for that reason only.

Also, after replacing pretty much everything but the seats inside my Jeep... the dash looks really bad now... again, great condition just faded.

I've searched the threads for anything on this & there are a few mentions of dying things, but I'd love some step by step info & feedback from some who have done it...

First, have you tried treating them with some 303 Aerospace protectant? I was totally surprised at the difference it made in my dash and top... Much cheaper and easier than re dyeing stuff. But if you want to dye them get some Duplicolor vinyl/fabric dye at Autozone, clean them with degreaser, scuff the dash with a nylon pad and spray away...

It is good stuff, I use it sparingly due to the price, but it is very good stuff....
