    Don't even think about it ... The first scuff will expose the original color anyway and it will look ugly ... They used to make colored grommets for some models like PC600 (green) and maybe they should do it to diversify the revenues. Or maybe it's just not cost-efficient fr them ... I just don't know.

    I was thinking about doing the same thing, my BB 10's would look better with black grommets, I was thinking of buying some of that spray paint for use on plastic items and see if that works.

    I think what atatu is referring to is "vinyl dye," which does a decent job of adhering and "bonding" with plastics. It's worth a try! People use them for dyeing plastic parts in the world of "computer mods."
