Unfortunatley, he is right. Paint can be applied to the spacers, but it isn't a good substrate for a long lasting durable finish. You may be able to pull it off with adhesion promoter, but if all you did was what you said, it won't last. Just try to pressure wash it and you'll see

gone to see the world...........

I haven't tried... But I'll bet you could boil them in RIT dye and it would impregnate them...

This material seems real similar to many of the nylons/delrins that the RC hobby industry uses... and most of them will hold the dye... Of course it's just the surface though and could be scratched off like anything else...

I just left mine white... 'cause... wgasa... get some dirt and mud under that truck and you'll never see the shiat anyhow...

Biatch! Why didn't you just order black pucks from Roger? I'm not sure what process he uses but mine are still black. You can also order HDP sheets in different colors but I don't know what process they use either.
