Convertible Top Color Change?

Is there any way to change the color of my convertible top without actually changing the whole thing? Can I just dye it or something?

I want to paint my car, but my tan top is really limiting options here.. :\

What color is the car now and what are you thinking of changing it to?

And you live in paradise so why do you need the top up?

The car is green at the moment. It wasn't my color of preference but I kinda fell in love with the car.

I wanted to paint the car either schwarz or alpineweiß (it was originally this color), but I really feel the natur top is out of place.

Currently i'm considering painting the car mystic blue. I love the color and think it'll go good with the top. Natur leather interior too, so unless i can find a black interior (which i have a lead on) i'll probably just stick with going blue.

Aside from all that, the natur top gets dirty and looks like crap :\

mystic blue = hawt

IMO, nothing looks good with a tan top. Might as well paint it.

Yeah, I love Mystic Blue and I feel it'll match really well with the natur interior.

I never liked the top color, that's why I run with it down as much as possible. The reason why I'm hesitant to change it out though is that it's only got like a year on it, and is in great shape.

I was thinking you could resell it, but theres no chance of you getting close to what you paid for it.

Funny how Americans have this idea that convertibles are "girl" cars........very odd.

Anyhow, no way to change the color without changing the fabric
