Many reproduction plastic parts are not offered in the colors they were originally from the factory, additionally many parts are not reproduced and require us to find salvage parts that may also not be in the correct colors, leaving it up to the restorer to dye the parts to the desired color. Knowing the correct process to dye these parts will ensure the completed parts will look good for years to come.
