Paint SOFT Doors??????

Hey guys. I have a nice set of Tan soft doors. The problem is my soft top is Black. Has anyone every used a type of Fabric or Canvas spray paint to change the color of these to black? ANY IDEA?

Get some apolstry spray paint. It's what used car lots do to make you're carpet look new again.

I used Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric Paint to paint my denim blue mopar bikini top black to match my windjammer and tonneau cover. It's been on everyday for about a year and a half and it still looks great! The trick is to use several light coats to keep the fabric's flexibility. Hope this helps!

I recently used Forever Black top dye. it did a really nice job on my soft top, I imagine it'll work as well on soft doors.

No problem! I'm glad it worked for you. I wish I could take credit for trying it first, but I read about someone else using that stuff on one of these forums. I'm going to use it again whenever I get around to fixing the gaping hole in my soft top....
