Default Bobcat 50 canopy tinting


Has anyone attempted tinting the canopy on the Bobcat 50? Will the material accept the Rit dye method?

Default RE: Bobcat 50 canopy tinting

Good question.

The plastic on mine was painted from the bottom, not condusive to the dye method.... Not the thickest plastic either.

On one plane that I have which I will build next year, I was planning on lightly fiberglassing the bottom completely to give the canopy more strength, and then painting the top.
