I've been looking around the net to figure out if it's possible to dye metal. I see people using vinyl dye to dye plastic for PCs. But, that's plastic.


Does anyone have suggestions for dying a replay's external metal case black? I don't really want to paint it, I like the look of the brushed aluminum.

A metal components finisher might be able to powder coat and bake the case black. It will give it that professional black finish.


You'll probably find it easier to spray paint it black.

Use a artists airbrush as opposed to a spray can for a finer finish.

If it is indeed aluminum, then it can be anodized black. This, however is not a DIY project.

Or - you could just hide the Replay and construct some sort of box that just extends the IR receiver into a phony black box...
