I strongly advise against dyeing unless you absolutely have to. Best way to go about it is sandpaper and elbow grease. It's only the surface that has oxidised.

However If you absolutely must then you want Rit synthetic. Noting the synthetic bit. It's designed to hold to nylon and plastic rather than relying on absorption.

I did a set of blue tuffs a couple of years ago..
Spent days with razor blade,( they were bad nic) and 1200 grit wet n dry.
Came up decent, but left them in dylon dye for over 3 days.
Was really pleased...shit load of work nothing nice ever comes easy.

One is so faded from the sun mate, they need a re-dye. I will look into Rit Synthetic.  :daumenhoch:
