Alright lission... it does leave streeks but you wipe them away... look at the picture NO STREEKS! only TWO coats... and most people alredy have a permanent marker laying around...

Yeah, definitely much harder. Plus, with a box of dye, I can use it about 6 different times, and do an unlimited amount of covers, since I've done a dozen with just one batch.

Re: Diffrent way to dye your Sprint Pro Batt Cover!

I had a dye project fail, following directions even.
I may try this, I have a box of sharpies and an extra batt cover.

Still, I hate the smell.

Re: Diffrent way to dye your Sprint Pro Batt Cover!

I used sharpies to color in stuff that's black but have paint chipped off or whatever. It works well from a distance, but up close I've always noticed that sharpies have a distinct purple hue to them, especially in very bright environments. They also don't stick on metal very well, hahah. Sharpies are awesome for coloring things black nonetheless.

omg. Next someone will post they used colored pencils, or the blue water in their toilet. Box of dye is more sensible for this.
