Anybody ever tried to dye their coro with RIT Dye before? If I had a bottle, I'd go try it on some scrap for myself.

Thanks.

Isn't that stuff water soluble? If your plane got rained on it wouldn't it run all over the place.

If you've ever printed something on an Ink Jet printer and then gotten wet you know what I mean.

Hmm. You are probably right about that. I was hoping there was some magical chemical bonding process that took place.

I'm not claiming to know anything about Rit dye...BUT...don't people use it to dye clothes and then don't they wash those clothes after they are worn and does the color wash out ?

Try it you may be on to something.

Default If It does

If it does come off with water at least your plane would always be running .
