Ok so I picked up another movie Megatron and I've decided to try to dye this one. I have a few questions before I start, and yes I've already read Ops tutorial, but I still want to ask some questions. First of all the blue paint apps, do I need to strip those before dying, or will they just come out a darker color? Second has anyone tried the Isopropyl method on Megatron? Does it work, or it works on pretty much all TF's that we know of so it should work on him? The electronics inside are kind of a problem. I have got them almost all the way out, but the wires going into his battery compartment I don't think I'm going to be able to do anything with. I was thinking that I'm just going to wrap the electronics really well inside a plastic bag so they don't get wet while I dip his chest area into the dye. Yes I know not to dip the electronics into the water at all. I was going to hold the bag while I lower the part in with tongs. I don't think it'll cause any problems if the batter compartment wires get wet, as long as I give them enough time to dry. Finally, what color do you guys think to dye him? My initial inclination was to dye him black and follow Ops method by just dry-brushing him silver. My other option is to die him a little darker grey and dry brush him with gunmetal metallic, which is what I used on my first repaint. This is probably going to be one I keep for myself.
