After checking on it several times over a few hours, I decided to leave it in overnight. Bad idea. By morning, the flight plate had expanded, while the rim had not, making the disc look like a giant bottle cap!
It was freaky lookin'. The disc 'dried out' after about a week and the flight plate actually shrank and changed the overall angle of attack on the wing of the disc such that it flew unpredictably...beyond understable. Nothing like a Monster.
I did almost the exact same thing with a Champion Monster. After a friend put a sick dye on it, I didn't like how my name and number showed through the flight plate. Dabbing with acetone faded it, but didn't remove it, so I turned the disc upside down, filled it with acetone, and let it sit overnight.
Like you said - bad idea. Sharpie was gone, but disc is unthrowable.
