Thanks Tom, actually, it is a big improvement but the top has a couple ragged edges and abrasions that the dye was not going to hide. the job was to turn a 50/50 car into a 20/20, good at twenty feet or twenty miles per hour. this dye was a water borne product and sprayed really well. I sprayed a light coat of water first and let it dry well between coats. it took three coats to hide the black spots. I would not hesitate to use it again.
