View Full Version : Dyeing Chassis
06-10-2010, 08:24 PM
I've been wanting a different color of chassis, gray is getting boring. My question is, is there a product that lightens the color first? Like if i wanted to dye it red, it usually comes out a dark maroonish color but is there like a product that lightens the color of the gray chassis so it will dye a nice red?
And how much of the RIT dye bottle do i use? The whole thing?

the amount of dye will depend on what shade you want and how much water you are using, start with half and work from there,
not sure about lightening it, i think RIT has a product that is supposed to lighten fabrics, no t sure if it will work though. maybe bleach? post up what you try...

not to mess up your thread but how do you dye the chassis?

You can't make it lighter. The gray of the plastic will always make your dye color look a little darker.
More dye = darker colors. The longer you leave the parts in will also make them darker.
I miss the good ol days of white nylon parts you could dye any color you wanted.
