Hi All, I'm new to this forum...I have a question...Is it possible to paint a soft top...mine is tan and I want to do black (mostly to drive the wife crazy...heh heh) I've read enough posts here to see a love for bedliner...would that work?...other options? or better to just buy a black soft top
I painted some beat up soft doors, top and bottoms black, three years ago and they are still going strong with no chipping, no fading, and they are a lot easier to clean up, leaving no mud stains... Krylon, flat black

x2 on Duplicator fabric paint. I didn't do the prep that TnDz TJ did besides a typical soapy wash and air dry but my Besttop safari top and upper door sliders went from spice color to black with no issues, 3mos texas heat holding up well.
I was actually surprised how even and clean the Duplicolor worked. Went on very even with no 'heavy' spots or strips to contend with. Dries to a nice satin sheen and holds up well to pressure washers too to clean the mud off.

OP, I would use the fabric paint just because of the soft,pliable,flexible material you are dealing with versus plastic paint. Over time and exposure, I would think the plastic paint may began to have minute cracks.(IMHO)
