I've been doing some HALO kit bashes and decided I wanted my BBI Halo helmets to be closer to the dark color of the BBI Anniversary HALO Helmet. I purchased black Rit dye and took the plunge quite literally. It worked great. They came out almost black except for the grey side patches which are now lighter than the rest of the helmet. In reality they just seemed to stay the same color. Remeber to clean the helmet and remove the visor and goggles before you put it in the boiling water. I used 409 and it seemed to remove any grease that might have inhibited the dye. Also remeber to dunk it in cold water then put it in boiling salt water to set the dye.
