    pretty easy actually get you some black rit dye and some aceatone/fingernail polish remover and a big pan and a dipping basket (for like fries or something.bring your dye water to a boil then add the dye lower the temp to just below the boiling line and add your aceatone then you just constantly dip and remove your parts untill they are the tone you want them.I don't advise doing this inside and watch your temp or it can catch fire and never leave your parts in for long keep dipping and cooling them or the plastic will warp.The more aceatone you use the better the dye will take I normally use about 3 bottles to a normal dye mixture.
