I'm not sure why it didn't want to accept the dye - I'm going to get more dye today and am gonna try starting fresh with some JT clears and see how well I can get them to turn out..

Yeah, I haven't found a JT part that wouldn't take dye.

Inversely, I haven't found an Invision part that will.. =/

Only i3 part that I've seen take dye really well are white frames... Clears don't really hold them or take the color you had in mind... If you've done it, throw a pic up Curious to see it

I remember seeing a guy at my local field A few years back that dyed his clear invision frames Rasta Colors. things looked killer..


In my personal experience I've had Great results when dyeing clear faded invision frames. Just gotta make sure to rub the frames down with acetone or mineral spirits first and make sure the dyeing solution is very hot almost to the point of boiling for the dye to soak in well. This technique also works with JT clears very well also. I've dyed these in 2008 and there still holding up very well.



Also I've been kicking around the idea of dyeing some custom i3 straps. I've done a lot of jt straps over the years i think its time to give the i3 strap game some love..

Here's some pictures of my previous work..

Did anybody see the red with blue bottom i3 on eBay. It's a red I haven't seen before. Asked him if it was painted and he swears he got it at a pb store...

Here's a ****ty pic
