Plexiglass window mod

i accidently dyed my window in my grips so i decided to fix them
here's what you'll need

your grips
a razor knife
a dremel with a 1/16 inch side cutter
piece of plexiglass or lexan



first from the outside of your grips carefully cut the window out
start from the corners and meet in the middle of the sides

once that's done use your dremel to cut a notch in the short sides




after that all you have to do is cut the plexi to fit and your in buisness



Tell me what you think

the same thing happend to me i had to hang the grips in a pan and bring it to almost a boil and leave it there for a half hour or so. i also did it the next day with the mix i saved mabye use less water and more dye.

i think it was satin dye by RIT, got it at wal=mart for about 2.50

mabye they have to be dyed once then dyed again?

back on topic this mod only takes 5 minutes once you have all the stuff handy, just take your time cutting the plexi, it's easy to get off center and make it oddball shaped, cut it bigger and sand or file it down, to get it perfect
