I dunno about a lense, seems like it could weaken the plastic. I'd like to see how (if) the dye takes to the grips if you could post pics when they are done that would be cool.

Well I've done grip's before but I can't get pic's of it though as it was posted on the old forum but I took a set of Dye clear panel grip's and drop them in there and it didn't take long to turn them black at all! I still have them and yeah there a real shiny black now and that stuff definitely isn't coming off!

I'm gonna do it this weekend and I'll definitely post pic's.

Dying bolts will cause a little swelling, so be aware of that. Dying lenses, if it doesn't look good, no GOOD field will let you on with it. I however, have gotten away with a dyed lense that I did myself. You won't be able to reach any sort of black on a lense, or anything transparent for that matter, you may be able to achieve a Smoke colored lense or something, but it may be some off color of purple. If you have any questions on dying information, feel free to ask me.

As for grips, you have to be careful how long you leave them in (dying clear grips is the best, I would not suggest dying already colored but transparent grips) for the color that turns out. For example, I had a pair of Clear Dye Sticky grips, that ended up turning blue while trying to dye them Green. The Dye stickies will absorb the dye VERY quickly, as opposed to a set of JT Elite lenses that I dyed which took a while to get to a good dark tint.

Here's my How-to off of the SCP forum's in which I dyed my clear part's smoke!Even have a pictorial aren't I good!
Now those are the clear grip's I dyed and man they went black quickly which if my skull grip's do the same thing that will be fine!

The acrylic clear part's on my phantom didn't last long maybe four month's before they turned into a root beer color!
