It comes in a few basic colors- think interior colors like neutral whites, greys, browns, and some reds, yellows and blues.

Where the hell can I find this locally? I'll get some and f with it and post the results if I can find it around me and not have to order it. Personally I don't think it'll work like we're thinking because it's made for cloth... But no reason not to try it.
I used VHT paint for darkening my tail lenses on my GTI. They make some good quality stuff.
I'll do a search tomorrow and see what I can find online but if anyone knows if wally world, lowes, or Pep boys carries this stuff lemme know

VW love! I'm an Audi/Porsche guy...but show the dubs love too.

i've used this stuff, i'm not sure how it will do on this type of plastic. it worked really well on the rubber trim/bumpers on the old 944 though.

I ordered mine from summit and it works great on vinyl. I sprayed backlight vinyl (that's the flexible rear window used in convertibles) and it worked great. I adjusted the fan pattern, got my overlaps right, and it came out very even. After it sat for a short while it was apparent that the dye was inside the vinyl and would not flake off even after worst case scenario testing. I reccommend it for its advertised use. But our discs are not made of vinyl. So someone needs to try it.

If anyone can find it locally that would be ideal because shipping is expensive on aerosol items.

I have the Duplicolor version lying around, also black. I will try something at some point. What plastics are you going to try it on Lefty Hyzer? I'll try to tag some of the ones you aren't doing.

I was just going to spray an old dx kite that my dogs got a hold of...since it's already muck.

DX traditionally hates dye.
I'm not saying don't do it, I'm saying don't be surprised.
I will look through my stash tonight and list the candidates. We can cross off any duplicate blends at that point.

sounds good. i'll give it a try and see what happens. i've got plenty of star plastic laying around too, but didn't want to "ruin" anything. i'm sure i can round up one or two to test though. i'll go check the stash and see what's doable, and repost a list as well. if i'm not mistaken the duplicolor is slightly cheaper than VHT, so i'm interested to see how it compares.

This is the stuff I have.
I bought it at Advance Auto. It should be available at any major automotive store I would imagine.

take newsprint and mask off most of the disc, leaving just a little test-spot uncovered.

That's what I was planning to do except with vinyl. I wonder if it would seep through the vinyl mask since it is designed for vinyl?
Anyway, I just remembered I am leaving town and I have too much other stuff to do. This will have to wait until I come back.
Sorry guys.
