I meant cloth convertible tops, never heard of a hard top being dyed? I too am interested if I can do this as a DIY project in order to save money. Prep and paint instructions would be appreciated, I doubt I would be able to find a close color match to my Khaki hard top in a spray can.

I think he is referring to something like SEM, which technically is a dye usually. There's really no different with how you prep it and how it goes on than spray paint. Just consider it the same thing really.

Do a search on these forums for painting hard tops. This information has already been covered. The main four methods of DIY is using Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric, Krylon Fusion, SEM, and bedliner. The concept for all of them is simple...prep well, mask well, paint...and TAKE YOUR TIME with all of that.

Will it match existing paint? How do I know exactly what was used in first place?
That top did not initially match the existing paint. It looks like the standard black top and your Jeep just happens to be black. That does not mean they matched. If you want it to match, you can look into Duplicolor having the same exact color as your Jeep's paint, or got to a pro paint shop to have some mixed...or take it to a shop for the complete job.
