Here's how you can custom-color your light-colored RC wheels and other parts using inexpensive Rit fabric dye!

Bonus: Attached are some photos of items I dyed back in 2003 using Sunshine Orange and a few drops of Scarlet, to show you how very bright colors are entirely reasonable with RIT dye. On the T4, I dyed the wheels, spring clips, rod ends, nylon nuts, and even the so-called "foam things."

Wow great video Jang! I have only died rims once before, and I used the liquid form, as thats all I could find at the time. I wish I waited a little longer, because it cost about $13 Australian for the one bottle. Like you said, make sure the area around you is clear, and that you wear black clothing (I was tired and forgot that I had a white hoody on, now I got little black spots up my sleeves )

EDIT: One question, once you have mixed the dye with the boiling water and it has cooled down, can you store it in a jar for later use? or should you be disposing of it?

Thanks! You definitely don't have to dispose of the stuff immediately, though you shouldn't keep it around for too long because microbes might start growing in it like with any water-based liquid. Imagine it's fruit juice or something It'll probably keep longer in the refrigerator.

Don't use this stuff in a pot that you plan on cooking with at a later date.

best way to save your pots and pans, is head to a garage sale or a flea market and pickup a nice decent sized pot for like $1 and use that. do not use your good cooking hardware to do this.

Yep, as I said in the video, literally any color can be dyed to black.
