dye roll cage padding?

Anyone done this before? Mine are really faded and it looks so bad on a black jeep. I was thinking of buying one of those dye packs you can put it the washer. Any ideas to make the pads look better are welcome!

Thanks

duplacolor makes a spray on cloth dye that i have used on a set of seats that worked great. it doesn't rub off or bleed on your clothes at all even when it gets wet.

I thought about that but what about the top of the sound bar? People just use a rattle can and it sticks to that fabric? Hmm...

you can buy new ones for $100. Not sure the condition of yours other than fading.

x2..Autozone carries the duplicolor vinyl and fabric paint that works well. Ive painted my spice color pads to black along with the safari top. Works really well.

Yep use dupicolor fabric paint. It works great, all you news to do is clean the old fabric, let it dry, and spray away! Made mine look brand new

I did mine last week. Just removed them all. Put them in the washer on the delicate cycle. While they were drying in the sun, I went to auto zone and picked up fabric and vinyl spray paint/dye. They didn't have duplicolor, but they did have a similar flavor of rust oleum brand which worked just fine.

The faded fabric soaked up the dye like crazy. It ended up taking 4 heavy coats(about 1 can per coat) to make them a deep black again. They look awesome now!!

Did mine yesterday. I tried RIT dye, but it did nothing. I ran them through a regular wash cycle with detergent, let them dry, and sprayed them with flat black Rustoleum vinyl and fabric paint. I'm thoroughly impressed with them. Time will tell how they hold up. Oh, and I did remove the cover from the sound bar and did it, too...

I did mine last year with the Duplicolor fabric paint and they're holding up well. The hardest part was getting them off. I had to lube the zippers but they finally came off.

It's a good time to pack the sound bar full of polyfill (I used Hollofil)
