SEM is good stuff, but it's not miracle dye. It will look good for a little while, but unless the car is usually in the garage and out of the weather, it will fade and eventually start wearing through.
When I had first got my '69, it still had the original dark green vinyl top. It was in good condition, but was a little faded/blotchy looking. I simply applied Armor-All to it every now and then and it always looked like a new top. I used the car as my daily driver then, about once a month I'd spend 15 minutes applying a nice even coat and then rubbing off the excess with a clean rag. It always looked great, but I eventually had the top replaced because I wanted black vinyl instead of dark green.
