    chassis dye ?

    I want to dye the chassis on my slash can anyone tell me how? I know you can do small parts in a pan but the chassis is to big.

    I am no expert and have never done it but I seen a pic where a guy had his chassis half way in a big cooking pan. I assume he flipped it around and did the other side.

    I used a turkey pan from the grocery store. a aluminum one and bent the edges so it would hold it under water. the used boiling water. the dip in a pot method leaves a line.

    or you can do it in a tall pot then just flip it around. once the bottom is done then you just flip it, and do the top.

    Yes, you can. That's what I had to do.

    I used a turkey roasting pan when I did my E-Maxx chassis. I had it positioned over two of the burners on the oven top.

    I think it would be kinda cool if you did a line down the middle like diagonal... like half is grey, and the other half black... or 2 different colors...
    thats probably what Ill do if I ever do mine
    I am lucky I don't have any money.
