    Well, i bought some dye from JC whitney once, but it was of poor quality, and ended up drying funny in some spots. So i suggest you don't use theirs.

    Dying the vinyl a different color will work best if the new color is darker than the old color, obviously. If it isn't, it may take a few coats to completely change the color, and if that stuff cakes up on you, it looks nasty.

    Rit Dye works really well on fabrics, maybe you should try that

    Re: Brougham Vinyl Top

    I know this topic has been dead for a couple years now but it still pops up on google so I've been looking high and low for a place to find vinyl tops for Cadillacs like mine since I need a new one also. I found ONE place that makes and sells them, here's their website: newstalgiaparts.com The top is only a $200 depending what grain you choose, it couple be a little less. They make tops in full, half and quarter roofs, also for more than just Cadillacs in case you know of someone else looking for a top for their...whatever. Cheers folks!
