customizing the toilet bowl pickguard

I'm talking of the jem7vwh pickguard...and it's on many other guitars as well, but it gives off a yellowish brown dirty toilet bowl look. It's not pure white if you look at it in the right light.

I want to modify mine to give off a neon green tint, and was wondering what i could maybe soak it in to get this effect. Some good green dye or something of the sort? I like the effect the pickguard has, but I just want to alter the tint to a bright green.

I've got a green dimarzio bridge pickup, and a green dimarzio strap, and i plan to add other multi-colored items to my mods, but I want that toilet bowl yellow-brown to be a bright green.

Any sure guesses at what I could do. Let me know. Thanks.

Replace it with the color/style you want. Checkout EKG, pickguard paradise, and one other site, but I forget the name.

BTW, that's 'mother-of-toilet-seat', not toilet bowl.

I thought you were supposed to use Kryptonite to get neon green?

Are there any AT home, ideas I can do?

I've looked at the green pearl pickguards they have for strat styles and it's just not the shade i'm wanting. The sites all have seagreen. I want a light and BRIGHT green.
