    I'm pretty sure vanson can get it done but im not sure if its in house or if they send it out. On the other hand HBerry is a student and would prolly do it for like 50 bucks with a few sharpies

    mmmm

    I thought once leathers were dyed during the development process, you couldn't change it????dying is a long process with leathers before the material is even cut and stitched yes/no???

    If you get to the point where you are going to consider the sharpie option I have a can of black spray paint unopened that I don't need, it'll save you loads of time.

    dying leathers

    had the same issue witha a set abotu 4 years ago..(pre-RI)
    some one wrote me this
    " bought a bottle of FIEBING'S LEATHER DYE at Hobby Lobby and dyed them black.
    They turned out great. There was a little bit of bleed through through the perfs the first couple of times I wore them but after that there was no problem. It comes in any color you want so you can do them in black or match them up to the red.Try it
    the worst thing that an happen is that you turn black on your skin.

    You mean how many bottles it would take to resuscitate dying leathers?

    Depends on the juice!
