Hey all, has anyone tried to die the Mastercraft logo and X-Series logo on the observer seat? Mine is that light grey and almost a faded tan now? Not sure what the original looked like on a 2008? I would love to dye it black. Thoughts?

I have wondered about that also. Mine was red, now almost pink. Not sure how to keep from staining the vinyl around it. Red sharpie maybe.???

I was just wondering this myself. I'm thinking a permanent marker is the best option.....

The only thing I could see using a sharpie is my red X is outlinde with gray thread. I'm concerned the red would bleed into the gray.

My worry as well - or if I accidentally get it on the vinyl?

I soak in 303 on a regular basis.

What about fabric paint? Should be able to get this from any Craft Store. They use this to paint T-Shirts and other fabrics, perhaps it will bond well with the thread used for the embroidery

I might try to do this this weekend. Have been wondering for awhile now.

I asked my GF who manages an embroidery shop. She said they keep an assortment of ultra-fine tip Sharpies on hand for "color adjustments". The fine tip allows you yo leave a buffer zone between the thread and the vinyl to prevent the ink from bleeding. Don't do too much on on spot at one time so you don't saturate the thread completely. This can cause the thread to wick and allow the ink to reach the vinyl.

Mastercraft Must Have Used Some Cheap Non Uv Resistant Thread On Some Of It. The Star On Mine Is Still There But The Writing Has Desintegrated To Nothing
