Somebody on HBF said it worked real well, I saw it the other day & almost bought some but they didn't have any colors I was interested in.

Just start with Navy Blue Rit Dye, and keep it in the dye until you get the color you want. The longer it's in, the darker it gets.

Ok thanks any tricks to help the plastic take the dye?
Nope, just get the RIT Dye in the box, not the bottle, and just follow the directions. Boil, then low heat. I wouldn't let the wheels or any other plastic parts sit on the bottom of the pot. They could melt from the flame. Keep mixing them. Normally about 10 to 20 minutes for a dark mix. Sometimes as long as an hour. Try it out on something else first, if you have something to TEST with.

If you use an adhesion promoter (spelling) it will hold longer.Bulldog makes the best rattle can for that.It acid ectches it to the plastic and works great.Helps make that paint stick to anything and its clear.I don't know that it would hold up on rims but it may be fine on a few other parts.

I've used the KRYLON on other types of plastic (chairs, and some plastic pieces in a car I used to have) and it held up very good. I just cleaned the plastic really well with dawn dish soap.

I've had good luck with the KRYLON fusion paint also, I painted a plastic RC helicopter canopy and some other stuff and it worked good.

Any idea on what kind of paint I could use on the outside of my stock body? I'll just like to have a flat black...getting a little tired of the stock body. And no money to buy the carbon body.
