Stupid me. I am trying to keep the original grain of the wood and sanding is a last resort.

You want to vinyl dye wood?

Wood should be painted, plastic should be dyed.

It is plastic. Sanding is last resort. I want to use vinyl dye but I have to take off the primer. Is there any way I can take off primer without sanding.

the plastic is wood-grained? you could try paint thinner but I have a feeling it will melt the plastic.... and primer is sorta designed to stay put. at this point, it'd be easier to go forth with regular painting since it is primed.

Once you go the paint route, you can't go back.  That is the first and most important rule to vinyl dye.  The primer has effectively sealed the plastic, and unless you sand back into "virgin" plastic, the dye can't penetrate and is pretty much useless.  Unfortunately, you're stuck with paint now.

If I don't sand is it possible to take the Primer off with a solvent and then use dye. Can a strong solvent such as break fluid remove primer and restore the plastic?

Anything capable of removing the primer is also going to eat plastic.

Hi, I read your article and Vinyl Dye sounds well better than paint, it took me ages to find somewhere in the UK that will actually sell this over the web.The first place I ordered was out of stock of white, and took ages to tell me,  I ended up with some stuff made by magix from www.vinyldye.co.uk .

I canít believe I didnít know about this stuff.

Since Iíve changed my surround sound from Black to white, my friend keeps asking me if it would dye a PVC door? Do you know if it would? From maybe white (his is white) to red?
