Removing spot from convertible top?

I have 1968 Mustang convertible with a black top. There is a white spot (almost appears it's been bleached) on the top above the passenger seat about 9" in diameter. It is in the fabric and not something that can be washed off; any suggestions on how to conceal or camouflage this? The car is a driver; not a show car. Thanks.

Those tops are vinyl, so get some SEM black dye and touch up the spot, or dye the whole top. You can buy it in aerosol form or spray it with a spray gun. You will need to follow the instructions and clean the top with SEM cleaning products, but you can get some really good results.
