Vinyl top colour change

I'd like to change the colour on a vinyl top. Is it possible to go from blue to white? I've used rattle can vinyl dye before on interior pieces with decent results. This will be on a vinyl top so I want to make sure it'll be durable and uv resistant. Any tips to give? I'd prefer to not use rattle cans. I've read dupont sells it by the sprayable quart. Is that a good way to go?
It's gotta look good. Nothing half-baked.
I appreciate any tips,
dh

You can definitely spray white over blue. SEM products are also sold by the pint, quart, and gallon. It can be sprayed, or even brushed on. Clean the top with SEM soap, then spray on Sem WB vinyl prep. Add SEM crosslinker to the final color (which increases adhesion and makes the surface more resistant to cleaners) and then spray or brush on the final color. You will be thrilled with the results. Go to www.vinylpro.com for these products.

Call Thad or Donna at Vinylpro, they can tell you exactly how to do this with SEM products, and it won't be real expensive. 800-750-7939 , or 724335-4808.
