Soak them in Ritt dye and warm water until they're as dark as you need.

HTH, Jim.

This is not rocket science.

warm water (not hot enough to warp the plastic) follow the directions (add salt) and leave in until it's as dark as you like.

True some plastics won't take dye, in that case I use model car paints....
