Rag Top Revival

Hey guys
so summers coming in and want to bring new life to my top
currently its a bit faded and has sun damage in one spot not major but noticeable from a glace. Being an outside car most of its life i want to bring it back.
I called a paint store near by looking for a dye to use (BLACK) but the guy said they only have paint, im assuming its vinyl paint.
my question is which is your fellow carbio owners opinion if you done it. Should i keep looking for a Dye the top or spray it out of a can?
thanks

I haven't seen any cars that have had this done, but there are some posts on the E85 forum where people have used this:
