Has anyone dyed their rag top?

My Z4 black top has faded, and I saw this dye on Amazon

Renovo Fabric Soft Top Reviver


Product Description
The ultimate product to make old, faded, black fabric convertible tops, RV and boat covers look like new. A permanent, water based black dye that may be applied with either a brush, sponge or air brush and dries in 2-3 hours. Badly faded tops may require a second coat. Clean the surface thoroughly with Renovo Soft Top Dry Cleaner and then allow it to dry completely. Use 3M Blue Masking Tape to mask off the rear window, the glass and paint. Start the application at the center section of the front of the top. Work from side to side, progressing towards the back, maintaining a wet edge as you work towards the rear. The technique is similar to painting with water based paint. Immediately remove any drips on paint, glass or trim with a wet cloth. If the top is badly faded, apply a second coat after allowing the top to dry for 24 hours. Allow it to dry for 24 hours and then follow with a coat of Renovo Fabric Ultra Proofer to protect and prolong the life of your new looking top. DO NOT use on vinyl or vinyl impregnated fabric tops. When in doubt, consult the manufacturer. The 1Liter bottle will normally cover the average top with two coats.
