    I found some black rit dye at my local Walmart in the the laundry detergent section.

    I found mine at Kmart. I did my Slash and pede at the same time. Used the whole packet and left the bodies in hot water for a little ovwr an hour. Gives the truck such a new look. Totally worth it!

    Will check kmart out this weekend as well. I'll compare which one sells it the cheapest. Thanks!

    Btw, I just boil water until very hot, pour whole packet of rit dye, soak chassis a little over an hour and I'm all set right? Do I need to add anything on the hot water besides the rit dye?

    Pretty much, yes thats what you do. I put two pots on the stove and put one body in each so as the water got hot, so do did the bodies. I believe already having the bodies hot before putting them in the dyed water helps the dye stick to the body better.

    Put the packet in the hot water, stir it a little, put the body in and cover the pot or bucket to retain the heat. Just make sure you thoroughly clean the body of all dirt before hand. I paid around $2.29 at kmart if I recall correctly.

    Stampede_Fanatic, please let us know how that ice blower works out if and when you get one. I did consider buying one but there are things about it that I dont like. For example, I wish they made ducts at the bottom or side to direct the air out, I also wish they would have incorporated some sort of fins on the mount to aid in heat dissipation. I went to the only place that sells it that I know of, the manufacturer, and after putting the item in the shopping cart and having the tax and shipping estimated, the total was $52.......No.Thanks.
