Has anybody tried dying a Wii-mote rather than painting? Answered

I saw the color Wii straps with RIT dye Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/Color-Wiimote-Straps/) and was wondering if anybody had yet tried taking apart the Wii-mote and dying the plastic rather than painting the surface? if they had or have any suggestions please let me know.

I took apart a wiimote and dyed it using rit dye and it worked ok except thetop glossy piece of plastic shrank... and it was then imposible to put back together... *sigh

try making a cast of the plastic and casting it with any color plastic u want

I believe it would, However to get the plastic to "take" the colour it would involve heating the dye with the plastic.

This mod comes to mind.
