Stain PVC any colour you like
« on: January 22, 2013, 08:54:46 AM »
I came across this looking at an unrelated subject:

I was wondering if it might work with flexible PVC phone cords, for anyone wanting colour match cords.

I heard a rumor that Bell would re-color (stain) there used handset cords. I have seen factory Repainted cords. I think staining would look better.

This topic by D/P  from a few years ago was quite interesting.

Never tried it but the results on that cord shown were very good.
