Here's what they say...

Forever BLACK™ Black-Top gel will rejuvenate your faded sun-damaged tops (vinyl, convertible, bimini and soft tops) to a rich black luster. This environmentally friendly, silicone-free, black-pigmented polymer will keep your vehicle in tip "top" condition. With built-in UV protectants, Black-Top gel will protect your top from further sun damage.

Hey if aam can find an old black dye sitting around in his garage that had a $2 price tag and it worked great, I would stick with that. haha

He has a thread on it... maybe in 'what did you do to your roadster. '

Albert (aam) does have the dye or die secret. It's somewhere in the forum abyss.

303 High Tech Fabric Guard - A good safe option - Helps Color!

I waterproof my top once a year. I have used this product with great results.

Not only does this product make the water bead-up like a freshly waxed painted surface, it will improve the color (black) of the top.

Easy to apply but best to do in warm weather and dry in the sun.

Just google it to get product info. and sources to buy it and application tips.

Ive used 303 as well. I dont think it will do the color change you are after. I find it similar to a dark car needing a good wax. It will enhance but not change the color. A touch deeper color and uniform to me but not changed darker per say.
