I just wanted to add this side note here. This tip might be good for someone wanting to add some color to their battery tops.

This is a little trick I learned back in my r/c car days.
1. Get a big pot of water and get it boiling
2. Pick yourself a color of fabric die. (Rit, etc) Put the die in the water. mix well.
3. Take your white plastic items (in our case, Battery Tops) and place them in the boiling water for a few minutes. Longer you leave them the darker the color will be.
4. Take them out and you have colored tops. The color will not come off!
