Thumbs up Remolding Plastic Parts In Different Colors???

Can anyone hear make molds of say Servo Casings, Receiver Casings or anything plastic in different clear colors?

Sorry if this sounds stupid, but I am not sure if it would be very expensive and what not to do. But maybe someone with experience with casing plastic copy molds and what not will post here and maybe help me out.

If you are wondering why I ask this question? Well I want to take my RadioShack Xmods to another level with clear purple plastic peices instead of the black you see in the pic below...

Well I got an update on my car. I have not installed 2 "AA" size Li-Ions. Equals to 7.4v! I also upgraded the FET's to handle more powerful motors on the main circuit board and Tight Turns, to make the car turn %50 better left/right.

Oh and don't worry about what I said in the first post, I don't really care, it was a stupid question anyways. But enjoy my car pics...

You can use clothes dye to color any plastic bits you want.

Thanks for the comments!

Yeah, I know about Rit Fabric Dye. The black driveshaft gears you see in the pics where dyed using that.

The car will be pretty fast, around 25mph.

It wasn't cheap to make it look like this either. Around $400. lol

Here is another Mini-Hara for you people, car featured Full Ceramic Bearings... But just as good as my Xmod I. Oh and the bearing I want for my Xmod are Ceramic Hybrids and to get 14 of them would be $400!!!
