Using duplicolor vinyl/fabric paint on vinyl convertible top

Hello everyone, I have a very curious question for you all. Now my tan vinyl top is in bad shape with some minor cracks and a patch on one side. But it's not falling a part or anything. I want to paint my top black with duplicor vinyl/fabric paint but I'm worried if it's a smart choice or not. Has anybody done this? Does anybody have any recommendations on the idea? It would take me a year or more to purchase a new top so I'm looking for a long term temporary idea to make it look better for now.

If you're not running the top up and down it may come out ok and last a while. Only a guess though, I've never used that stuff. I know it's intended to be used on flexible surfaces but I would think that using it on a convertible top is probably toward the extreme end of it's capabilities in that regard.
