This is heresy in the raw denim community. I figured it was OK since I have two pairs of raw denim jeans, I'm going for the fade with the other pair, I really wanted a new pair of pale blue jeans, and repurposing makes more sense than buying even more.
To do the deed I used three Home Depot buckets in the tub. One was bleach with water, one was just water, and one was water with hydrogen peroxide to neutralize any remaining bleach. My plan was to bleach, rise, neutralize. Fun fact, bleach and hydrogen peroxide combined make Chlorine gas. So I had that going for me.
I used an old pair of jeans that I liked as a reference point. Since even light blue jeans look dark when they're wet I soaked these and kept them around during the adventure.
As afraid as I was of the bleach I expected the jeans to either immediately fall apart or bleach to white in 10 seconds. Turns out that with a 10 to 1 water to bleach ratio it still took 40 minutes.
When I thought they were finished baking I took them out and ran them through a regular washing machine cycle. I think I came pretty close for my first try.

Basically it's exactly what I would do if I owned a big boom truck. The only way it could be any better is if it transformed into a giant Decepticon killing machine that ate the Santa Clara 49ers for lunch.
But... But it is simply too long. There's not 2.5 hours of goodness in the movie. Unlike the train-wreck of TF2 or the uneven TF3 which was weighed down by existing in the continuity of T1 and T2, this Transformers saga starts clean with a new story. And it's a pretty good one.
I left the theater feeling that I could take T4 and make it awesome simply by cutting out a few unnecessary characters and side plots. And after a day to think about it I doubly believe it now. Give me T4 as is, without a single re-shoot, new footage, or even dialog, let me edit it and take out a few characters, a few scenes, cut down on redundant battles, and I could give you a 90 minute kick ass thrill ride. A T4 that would make more sense to people who don't already know who Galvatron is and would make people who know who Grimlock is love it even more.
The Blu-Ray release of this move doesn't need and extended directors cut. It needs a reduced/streamlined fan cut. If Paramount is looking for a volunteer for that project I'm ready.
