Dyeing weather stripping

Is it maybe possible to soak weather stripping in something to change the color?

I have these ugly orangeish pink door weather stripping that are in good condition and new ones are hard to find and probly expensive

I was thinking like black paint or ink

I think I would question the longevity of dyeing plastic and rubber with cloth dye. It also wouldn't help you to do weatherstripping that is attached to the car. If you take the wetherstripping off the car to dye it in boiling water, you might as well replace it. Try some of the paints made for re-coloring vinyl, or this stuff: CLICK HERE

Yea Dan i was wondering about that when i saw this on you tube never had heard of it before. And i was wondering about the vinyl dye or the paint i have used both of those before but not on rubber, worked pretty well on the door panels and dash parts but IMO i would probably replace them with new. I was concerned about the boiling water part myself. JMO
