thats a big negative ghostrider, the only way that a pcb is going to get color is at the factory before its built

Alright, here's the scoop on the custon mixed vinyl dye.  Car Corp (the place I got it from) said they can do mail order for whoever wants to get it.  It comes in whatever size container you want, I got it in a pint for about $7 and painted my keyboard, mouse, and front bezel w/ 3 coats.  Because it isn't in a spray can, you have to get a special sprayer they have, or use your own air brush.  The sprayer they have is $10 and you can buy new CO2 cartriges for it if need be.  I only used one for my whole project.

They said because it will be paint that is shipped, it will have to be labeled Hazardous Material.  That'll add an extra $10 to the shipping, but that's for an entire package that can hold 2 gallons if need be.

Their number to contact them is (608) 221-9099, address:
  1850 S Stoughton Rd
  Madison, WI  

Hope this helps you guys.  :)

its dye.. not paint.

it works by soaking into the plastic, and turning the plastic that color, i did my front bezel with 8 coats (all in one can!) and i can scratch it about 2mm deep and its still black and not beige.

no you cant put it on steel, it flakes off

I want to repaint my whole case solid black (its kind of a charcoal look now).  Now my question is, will this stuff work on metal, and I have a air brushed picture on one side.  Will I be able to dye this side? (the whole side is covered with a clear coat)
Can I get this side sanded down and repaint it?  I just want to go with a black and blue type theme and i can't because its charcoal >_<
ALSO on the faceplates for cd roms and such, how can I dye the eject buttons, and other things that dont come off with the face plate?

Read it, Dominion. No, it won't work on metal.
