Can I Dye the Embroidered Mastercraft logo?

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.

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
