There was also a healthy thread about painting chains (it may have been about green chains) started by yours truly.
I think we had determined the best way to save the ~ $95 everyone wanted for a green chain was to paint it by submerging the entire chain in melted wax leaving only the part desired to be painted exposed. Let the wax harden... paint away. Let it dry, and repeat for the other side or whatever.
I just ended up changing my "color scheme" and have a red KMC. Looks neato.
