Ok, as stated before, I need some help figuring out how, if they will, to get some parts of an Alternator Smokescreen to take the dye. I'm using the information pointed out in the advice thread sticky that covers several aspects of customizing, and this is my first experience working with dying plastic, instead of just painting it. Most of the parts of the toy are taking the dye exceptionally well. 1-3 minutes each to be dyed pitch black. However, several parts (Hood, front fenders, roof, rear wheel wells/fenders), are either taking the dye very slowly and unevenly, or not seeming to take it much at all. Some of these have been dyed for a total of up to 25-30 minutes each, and still have poor absorption leading to almost no color change or thoroughly uneven and imperfect color change. Most or all of these are the parts that replace the die-cast found on the Binaltech version. There seems to be something different in density or formula, despite the color of all the plastic matching. I'm hesitant to add too much acetone, for fear of totally destoying the parts, so, tips? Someone here must have done this before.
