@Double D- I thought the same thing with the Boss Hog idea, thought it would be a funny play on the name. But....I really like the Mustang idea. Maybe put some Shelby racing stripes and the Boss 302 emblem on it.

Dookville,

 

    I said it before and I'll say it again.  I love your touch up jobs or are they refurbs.  You know making a disc look new. 

When I did my stencils, I tried to make it meaningful or special to me.  If not, then you can do something with the name of the disc.  Like my Vulcan, I stenciled "Spock".

A Boss you could............

Put Boss Hog from Dukes of Hazard

Put Big Boss Man from the WWE

Put the Big Boss from Bruce Lee's Movie

Put Tony Danza from Who's the Boss

Put your favorite Mustang Boss

Put the Boss Hoss motorcycle

 

These are just some ideas.

Basically, find something meaningful or go with the "name" scheme.

Time for a new, more dificult project. I have a neon greenish yellow Star Boss that I just got. Since Star plastic dyes up so nice I thought I would remove the stamp on this one and try for a more complex stenciled design. The problem is, I have this blank disc that I don't know what to put on it. Any ideas guys?

I did a little repop on a couple of my favorite disc that where starting lack a little color. Figured while I was dying my daughters Teebird that I'd give my Opto Havoc and Pain a dunk in the fuschia. They where already a fuschia color from the factory, so this just deepened the color back up.

My 10 year old daughter won the Ladys of La Mirada Tournament in the FJ4 division. As part of her winnings she recieved a 150g Pro Teebird-L. The disc was white with a blue foil stamp. Not a bad disc for her, but she hated the color. What to do?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A nice 15 minute bath in some Hot Fuschia did the trick.

The brown Sparkle Striker was a brand new disc that was too hard to see on the ground, it was like camoflouge. Dying doesn't change anything except the color of the disc. It will not make an old disc shiney and new again. I just wanted it to be any easier to see color, and it turned out pretty bitchin.

So let me get this straight.

The "Stryker" Disc.  All you did is dip it.

The Dye did not penetrate the stamp.

So one can rejuvenate an old clear plastic and

make it look new again.

I use powdered RIT dye produced before 2009 (Old Formula) to make sure that it will work. I heat water in a large stainelss steel pot and add part of the package of powdered dye and bring it to a boil. I mix the dye in the water really well so that it is completely desolved or you'll get hot spots on the disc. I let the mix cool to about 130 and dunk the masked disc in for about 20 minutes.

 

On the yellow Bolt I used RIT Scarlet red.

 

When I get more supplies together and some new plastic I'll give it a go on a few more. So far just simple color changes and patterns. Would like to try multiple colors on a white disc soon. Maybe "Space Ghost" on a white Vulcan in the near future.
