Before anybody says anything I just noticed I have the cocking pin in wrong, but I fixed it.

Awesome job Shunut!

I dyed my Jambolt with Rit Dye (got it at Wal-mart.) Used a clothes hanger so it wouldn't get on my hands. Works wonders!

Default Re: Dyed my Bolt.

I didn't have any gloves and didn't feel like getting any so I got the dye all over my hands. It came off fairly easily with some Windex. It was pretty easy to do, except at first the color wouldn't take. The problem was I wasn't getting it hot enough. The instructions I got online didn't say that I had to keep the dye hot, just that I needed to get it hot to dissolve the dye. So I go an old pot, heated the dye back up, because it had cooled down. Then once it was hot, not boiling but hot, and left it in there for like 20-30 minutes and thats what I came up with.


So for others here is exactly how I would do this to your bolt or anything else you are going to dye:

1. Get Rit Dye in the color you want from your grocery store, Wal-Mart or Target.

2. Clean whatever part you are going to dye and dry it off.

3. In an old pan that you don't care about add 2 cups of water and the Rit Dye, per instructions on package.

4. Heat dye on stove until hot, not boiling just hot, and free of clumps, you'll have to stir frequently.

5. Turn stove down as low as it goes.

6. Add your parts that you want to dye. Everyone says you can just leave them alone until they are done but I stirred mine once in a while.

7. Once they've reached the color you desire remove the parts and place them in an ice bath (ice and water) and leave them there for about 5 minutes.

8. Take them out of the ice bath and rinse them off under cold running water. Rinse until the water runs clear.

9. Place in freezer for about an hour.

10. Parts are done and ready to go on your marker.


Helpful Hints:

GET GLOVES!!! Trust me on this one it will be much easier.

Put some newspaper down on your work area to help prevent any stains anywhere and it will stain.

Dye your parts at your own risk, I will not be held responsible for you messing up your parts.

Yeah Rit Dye can do wonder's on some gun part's like the bolt. I did Marvin-Martion's BKO bolt before I traded it off then I did my Timmy bolt and it came out great.

I dyed the clear part's on one of my phantom's before but it didn't turn out so great as they are made out of acrylic.

Good stuff.

JB.
