Subject: [CR]Dyeing a Brooks saddle & B5N question

Probably a sacrilegious question - but here goes: Has anyone tried to dye a Brooks saddle? I have picked up a Brooks B5N (really cheaply) which is a muddy sort of brown as if someone may have tried to make it black in the past. I would like to have this as a black saddle. Any suggestions on dyeing methods?

Also can anyone give me a date for a B5N?
