Forever Black Black-Top Dye for Vinyl Tops

Restore the color to your vinyl convertible top instantly!

Forever Black Black-Top Convertible Top Dye is a permanent black dye that instantly restores the deep, dark color to faded, black vinyl convertible tops. There’s no easier way to restore color and make your convertible look newer. You don’t have to drive around with a faded, dingy convertible top. Forever Black Black-Top is an instant solution to years of UV degradation.

Forever Black Black-Top is literally a black dye in an easier-to-control gel form that re-colors the vinyl and creates a deep, black luster. Black-Top should only be used on vinyl convertible tops, bimini tops, and tonneaus. It is not recommended for fabric. The dye’s unique polymers bond the pigment to the vinyl for long-lasting color restoration.

Forever Black Black-Top is completely safe on vinyl. The water-based, environmentally friendly formula contains no silicone or oil. These ingredients can dry the vinyl and cause it to attract dust. A top treated with Forever Black Black-Top retains its suppleness and the non-glossy finish does not attract dust.

Over the course of a vehicle’s life, the sun’s UV rays will fade and dry out any unprotected surface. To prolong its color, Forever Black Black-Top contains UV protectants and it is water repellant. This combination of restoration and protection will keep your convertible top looking its best for up to 12 months. What’s the last product you used that lasted a year with one application?

To further protect your convertible top, we recommend using a convertible top protectant regularly. 303 Aerospace Protectant has an SPF of 40 and leaves an attractive matte finish. It’s perfectly safe on vinyl and will keep it looking newer longer.

Only use Forever Black Black-Top on a black vinyl top. It is not intended to dye tops of other colors and it is not intended for fabric tops.

We recommend you clean the vinyl top well using 303 Fabric/Vinyl Convertible Top Cleaner before applying Forever Black Black-Top to ensure even color. After the top is completely dry, use the foam applicator included with every bottle of Black-Top to apply thin, even strokes across the top. Complete the entire job at the same time to avoid patchy results. Wipe off any drips on paint, glass, plastic, or metal. Allow 15 minutes to dry. Note: Wear old clothes and use an old towel for clean-up as the dye will stain fabrics.

For instant color restoration of black vinyl convertible tops, Forever Black Black-Top is the best product I’ve found. It’s easy to use, the results are long-lasting, and it’s a much more cost-effective solution than replacing a convertible top.

I applied it on a fabric top.
I applied the dye on a 2002 Jaguar XK8 black fabric top that needed a refreshing. It took me an hour to apply and I have never seen a more beautiful refurbished top. The final product was very evenly applied and looks absolutely natural. While applying the dye, you will have some shiny and matte spots but it will miraculously dry matte. It is a product that is absolutely deserving of 5 STARS. Thank you for the great product.
ProsVery easy to apply, very neat in final appearance and a true refurbishment to the canvas top.
ConsUnfortunately, the sponge applicator started coming apart but I was able to change the direction of the application flow and finished the task. Overall, an excellent product.

looks great, easy to do
I have enough left to re-do next year. Great if your car is parked outside in the sun! Will probably protect the vinyl as well!

Great product!!!
This is my second time using this. It has lasted almost 2 years. I just finished using it, it only takes about 10 minutes. I live in South Carolina, and the weather here is brutal on vinyl tops. It used to be a white roof, but 2 years ago I stained it black and I love it. It make my 2000 Chevy look new again. I will spray it with a coat or two of scotchguard next to waterproof it. I highly recommend Forever Black!!!
ProsSo easy to use!!! Looks great too!
ConsWear gloves, old clothes, and have paper towels ready for any drips on your car's finish.

Great Product
I used this product on a Corvette top that had faded. All I can say is WOW! I put on 2 coats, and the top looks like new. No streaking, just a great uniform color. I already purchased a second kit to use when it is needed.
ProsEasy to use. Great color.
ConsApplicator sponge deteriorates before product is used up.

When the product went on, it had the shine I wanted. When it dried, it was too dull. Not for me.

Excellent Product........excellent shipping
This is my second purchase of Forever Black........ since it did an excellent job on my 20100 Mustang Convertible when I used (twice) the initial purchase.
ConsThe sponge applicator fell apart....... It is REALLY BLACK so it is good to wear rubber gloves.

Will buy this again when and if needed
Recently purchased Chrysler Sebring with a black convertible top. It was aged and gray. We saw this product online and decided to try it. It was amazing. The first coat made a big difference and a second coat really made it look brand new. Would definitely recommend this to others. It was easy to apply and dried quickly.

Great Product
This product is really good! It brought my faded top back to life and cost way less than trying to replace the top. If your convertible top is in good condition but just faded or dull looking, this is the product for you. Easy application, just take your time putting it on for minimal clean-up or mistakes. A+++++

Another use
I used this on wheel wells that had faded horribly to shades of gray. Thoroughly cleaned the wheel wells, dried, then applied two coats per wheel well. They are perfect black now and really give a clean detailed look to my Tahoe. Also used it on the other black plastic pieces and came out really well.

Saved me a fortune
I Have a 2001 Honda s2000 and the roof was in a bad way, with environmental stains, wear marks and faded areas. I had tried virtually every product on the market and nothing removed these. It looked like a new roof was on the cards but decided to see if there was a automotive dye for vinyl on the marketl. I came across this product and thought I would give it a try. On the first application I was astonished with the results, a nice matt black look and my roof has never looked cleaner. Further applications have deepened the colour. Very impressed indeed! Just a shame its not available easily in the UK.

I don't care what anybody says, this stuff works and if it was 50 dollars i would still say it is worth it. Made my top look new again, also holds up very well to outside elements.

Leaves somthing to be desired
First application put on in long strokes and dried streaked. Second application put on like paste wax and came out swirl marked. Three hours after application it spittered rain and left the top spotted. Yes, it will turn your top black but don't expect like new condition, three coats and mind is still blochy. I had the unfortunate incident of parking down wind from a building being spray painted and nothing would take off the paint spots. Forever Black did a great job on hidiing the speckles on a two year old top. Their Instructions are useless. Do cover everything you don't want dyed such as windows. Do wear old clothes and rubber gloves. I would suggest first scrub the top well and let it dry to remove dirt, sap, oils, etc.I love it being called "Forever" and on the bottom of the box it says "Lasts up to 12 months" I guess they have a different definition of forever in California.
