    no tips, just strip it to bare chassis and boil the water, then dump the rit dye into the boiling water.....stir it, turn the fire down to simmer, then drop the chassis in, I leave mine in for a good 30 mins just to be sure
    I do have one tip lol. do this outside and not in the kitchen.

    If you do it on a BBQ, be careful with the pot, every stinking part of it will get REALLY hot.

    Go and get some cheap tin drip pans, like the ones used under a large pot roast or Turkey that are about 3 inches deep

    Take some stiff wire like for hanging pictures on the wall, make a front and rear hangar so when you set your chassis in the tray it doesn't rest on the bottom but is fully submersed.

    Have your tray in an area where the dye if splashed won't ruin anything, I use my deep sink in the basement. Add the hot water to the pan with the dye in it, stir to dissolve and let settle a few moments.

    Lower chassis into the dye mixture and then wait an hour or so for deepest penetration and coloring. Lift and air dry...........Done!

    yep, this is exactly what I did to mine with a turkey pan all 4 burners (medium) were on and when the water boiled I turn off 2 burners and left 2 at a very low fire. I left it there the next morning and put it away to an empty milk jug for next use lol, surprisingly it did work cause I use it to dyed my P4de chassis and I must have had it stored for atleast 3 months
