NONONONONO!!!!!! I tried using the black dye before and if you do not bleach the fabric first, you will have brown visors. The dye is fairly weak and will not completely darken the fabric, just slightly tint it.

In order for the dye to settle evenly, darkly and in the proper color, you have to remove any old dyes. Otherwise,the two dyes will blend and you get splotchy, poor coloring.

I used this Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric dye, it's in a rattle can. I worked really good, only left the fabric a little crusty. I actually taped off the warning labels and removed the mirror and it worked good. The only problem is I painted the other hard plastic pieces and now the paint has rubbed off the part where they connect to the stationary hook.
