Default CA Glue Dye

I was at the track this weekend, and I noticed a car that had blue CA glue around the graphite chassis.

Is there a colored ca glue or can you dye the glue? Any help would be nice. I am ok with the clear, but having blue ca on an AE car would be nice. If anybody has done this any help would be great.

I forgot to ask the guy how he did it.

If the thread needs to be moved, please move it. I tried searching and could not find anything.

Thanks
Chris

Are you sure it wasn't blue finger nail polish or a blue sharpie and clear nail polish? I've used clear finger nail polish to seal the edges. Works great, and is nice and shiny.
