    Since I can't post any threads in the Radicons to ask this question, I'll ask it here:

    Have any of you customizers found a way to turn colored plastic white other than spraypaint? I'm looking for a way to do it so as to eliminate rubbing. Any help would be great

    I'm not sure if there are any bleeching techniques that won't ruin the plastic.

    The only other thing that comes to mind would be to sand down the areas that will rub (before you paint the parts), so the added thickness of the paint won't allow the part to rub once assembled.

    Classics versions of Diaclone Police Sunstreaker, Diaclone Police Sideswipe, Wheeljack, and a few others, including Slicer if Wheeljack works out.

    Not sure why you couldn't post in radicons, but this belongs in Radicons General Discussion.

    vinyl dye is the closest you're going to get to bleaching a figure white.

    Vinyl Dye? Is it expensive? And where would I score some of this for a test run?
