I have a White vinyl top on mt 63 that I want to replace with a Black one. The top is in good condition and I hate to scrap it just to change color. Does anyone have any experience dying vinyl? I've re-dyed interior vinyl trim before but never changed color. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Also, I spoke to Al Knoch interiors at the Corvette Expo here in Knoxville and they make a cloth convertible top similiar to the tops on newer Vettes. They are reasonably priced ($359) but their labor is high ($500). Has anyone made this change or seen this product?

Thanks all,
Sal

I completely reshot my interior of my 66 GTO convert from gold to white about ten years ago. To this day it looks great, you really cannot tell it was sprayed..

I used PPG products. To be exact.. PPG Vinyl conditioner UK 405.. PPG Vinyl spray "custom white" UCV2-357.

Thanks Joe. I was wondering if there was a conditioner or primer when changing colors.
Thanks again.

I would not use Al Konch he is way off on his prices and his customer service is terrible.
