Commodie Lid Question

Re: That little Brown vinyl insert on the lid...


My wife wants "ME" to change the color on that thing !!

Can that be done without messing up the lid ??

Hawk,
Drill out the rivets on the back of the lid to remove the insert. I suppose you could then put new vinyl on it the color of your choice and then pop-rivet it back on.

Exclamation Just a thought

Rick
While working on the lid, be very careful as the hinges are a part of the water system..You may find, (it depends on model) underneath is a check valve system, that if it's broken..would leak water all over your floor~!

Lid cover

You could always make a toilet seat cover to fit.

I've used vinyl paint on that type of material and it held up well.
