jp'rs_peep'rs Head to the hardware store and get a plastic tub / can and some black dye. Fill up the tub with warm water and remove your top and place it in the water with the dye. Let it sit for a good while then take it out hang it in the air and let it dry. The side fabris around the windows can be done with a foam brush. You could also use hair dye like the lil old grannys use. That **** gets stuck to the sink and you gotta blast it off. Make sure you rinse everything real good with the garden hose and cool water before putting the top back on.

GoodLife Faded tops match faded fenders. Some times you have to face the fact your jeep is getting older and going gray.

Nothing that will actually last for more than the first rain storm. At least not that I know of. Wait till it starts leaking, and then buy a new top.

There are some companies that sell fabric spray paint, but I really wouldn't put the top down after doing that. Also not sure how it would hold up during a storm. The average life of a soft top is 5 years. I've gotten almost 8 out of mine, but it ripped, so it's time for a replacement. Your mileage may vary.
