RW suit Colour change
I have a RW skinny suit that has Red grab handles. My DZ won't let me jump it as they are concerned about confusion between the cutaway handle and the grab handles due to the colour. Can anyone recommend a good way of changing the colour of the handles? I've tried the strongest over-the-counter clothing dye and it just doesn't work. I'm thinking about using a LOT of Permanent marker, or maybe model paint or something?
it's a bit odd they won't let you jump it, as long as it's not the same colour as the body on your suit then it shouldn't be a problem!, if you are jumping your own rig then have you considered getting a rigger to change the cutaway pad? that maybe cheaper if the suit is expensive.
The suit is red at the front, but once the rig is on you can't really see much of it. It's not an expensive suit, so i've got no problem changing it. I'm still on student rigs at the moment so I can't really think about getting the cutaway handle changed until I (eventually) get my own rig.
Yep. That works. I had one of my suits changed by a rigger like that. I also had another suit sent back to Bev who redid the grippers for me with some other alterations I wanted. Great work and turn around time.
