If your looking to dye the top yourself then go Black as it's very easy to get a streak free finish as multi coating black to get a consistent colour is easy but not so with a colour as over painting tends to deepen the colour of the areas either side of the streak causing further streaking and more work if that makes sense.

But its more of a claret than bright red on the 991 and it looks lovely.
