Default Dyeing the overmold of a Nova

would it be possible to dye the rubber-ish overmold of a nova?

I have an orange one with a white rubber overmold and wanted the overmold to match the flight plate like this red one I have.

the red nova with a red overmold was a factory second and it looks like they won't offer any mono chromatic color schemes.

sorry I didn't include a picture that I was describing:



I wanted to have something that looks like the red nova (which was an actually manufactured that way with a red overmold and red flight plate.

Would it be possible to dye the rubber-ish overmold (similar to a MVP disc) of the orange one to match the flight plate? I understand that pro plastics and dx plastics don't take dye well so it might actually work out for the better with just the rubber overmold getting dye, also I guess I could use the regular/modern formula rit dye so just the rubber gets dyed?

I'm guessing it would probably work as well as pro type plastic, which is to say well enough if you're just going for a single color. Throw it in a dip of orange a day and see what happens.

Anyone have any experience with this yet? And what about the flight plate plastic? I'm not sure if this type will take dye or not as I'm not really sure even what it is. I could do more research, but you dyers out there will know in an instant what would take me a while to find.

Thanks!

from what I've read the plastic that the rubber is overmolded to is XT and is as undyeable as dx.

I don't have a picture, but I actually was able to to dye the white overmold of the nova a matching orange using iPoly Dye.

I stopped bagging novas over a year ago and sold them.

At one point I had some monochrome novas (all orange). I ordered some white facotry second overmold and orange plate from the innova pro shop. it was pretty nice.

so you can dye a white overmold in my experience. I have no experience dying other lighter color overmolds. I assume you can't dye the XT plastic.
