tjt94 There is specific spray paint for fabric and upholstery. It does not crack or ripple. Do whatever you want. I just offered my firsthand experience with doing what you want.

Casotakar1229 I would not spray paint it, but I think there is a way to dye it. spray paint will more than likely crack and ripple after putting that soft top up and down.

Not true. Do a little research. I got the idea from watching one of the car shows where they painted the seats of an old Buick. I used the paint for my saddlebags and they held up great.

tjt94 I painted some very faded nylon saddlebags a few years ago and they came out great. Go to any auto parts store and get the fabric paint. The paint held up way better than the fabric did in the hot sun that we have here.

kbwwolf Not sure exactly what spray paint would do to the canvas on a soft top over time.

Good luck with it.
