no I dont - dont know how to do that but trust me. from faded black top on a 97TJ with a 169000 miles on it. Bought new window uppers which made the old top look really bad. so it was new top or something else. Well treated the top and the old looks BRAND NEW.... people ask if its a new top. Took about 20min.. then few months later did it again just because.. now its really black...

Anybody else have any experience with this stuff? I was thinking about hitting my bumpers, flares, mirrors, etc. with Rustoleum bedliner, but I'd really like the top to look newer as well, or I'm afraid it will all look funny (since they are at least the same shade of gray now). the website quoted says it is only for vinyl tops, not fabric. Mine's a Bestop, so not sure if this stuff would be good for it or not.

Well, I bought it, and it will be going on in the next few weeks. All of the plastic parts got bedlined, so, as expected, the top now needs a freshening. I'll post pics once I get around to doing it.

Can you post some before and afters?

And just wondering, will this stuff cover up mud stains too? I've tried lots of stuff but I just can't seem to get the stains out of my top. And the only wheelin I have around me is mud and dirt so it's not like I'm just being stubborn. Haha

Sure will, I'm starting to get into the habit of taking pics...

It sounds like it is literally a dye, so I would imagine that it would cover up the stains, or minimize them at the very least. I don't have any of those, so my job won't be much help to you in that regard...

I picked up some Mother's Back 2 Black and used it on my flares. Turned out great.

I bedlined my flares and bumpers a few months back, but I still haven't tried out the Forever Black (although I bought it before I did the flares). All of a sudden it isn't all that important. I'll get to it sometime this summer and post some pics though.

I use plain ole cheap Vaseline on auto plastics and vinyls. I wipe it on and let it set for awhile on a warm sunny day, wait a few hours for it to "soak in", then wipe it off. It does a great job of restoring color and looks great and lasts weeks.

What I'm concerned about is what happens when it rains? Does it leave a greasy mess running down the sides like most ragtop restorers?

I'll let you know in a couple days as it's supposed to rain all weekend here. The packaging states that it will not bleed or collect dust. Since it's a dye, it should permanently bond to the fabric. *fingers crossed*

I have had really good luck with using a soft bristle brush and simple green to remove mud stains and then treating top with Turtle Wax Ice. Leaves no residue and repels water. And you can use it on the plastic windows too.
