I have some (semi)clear Brass Eagle 50 round hoppers that I would like to darken. I could just spray paint them but would like to try dying them first, if possible. How would I go about doing that?

"rit" dye... there is a thread in this section already i believe that tells how to do it properly...

Are they the real thin plastic ones with the fin on the bottom back? If they are, that material seems really thin, not sure if I would want to weaken it more by dying it.

These?

Yah, those are the ones I'm talkin' about. I have 4 of them and would be willing to risk one for a dye test.

Okay, if you're willing to try, RIT dye is definitely the way. Here's a guide:

Black has been known to turn out... Not black... Just for the record ;)
