Official Project/Upgrade/Build, Update Thread

There are far to many upgrade threads that have been cluttering the pages of this forum, so to solve that problem everyone will post in this thread. You can have ONE post in which you can update and add pictures as you get them. No other text posts will be tolerated. So basically this is a glorified picture thread with informational purposes. Enjoy.

Well as many of you have seen there have been tons of update threads nowadays. Well I was the first to ever 2k5 a species. I scrapped that gun for parts a few months ago and now I’m back and better than ever (for Christmas this year….pballkm21’s species is here ).




Well as of now here are the specs. These are just the baseline. I have hundreds of dollars worth of parts coming to me in mid September.

Species body drilled and tapped for alias front block
Alias front block
Alias frame
Alias ramsleeve
Species lpr
Eigenram
Hybrid Hedlock 2
CP alias adjustable ram cap
Alias torpedo reg
Techna Trigger
Infamous 2k6 trigger dremeled down to fit frame (now using techna instead)
VP species bolt
Frenzy 113 ( )
Species trigger guard that amazingly fits the alias frame with no modification (yes it worked installed on guns and the screw doesn’t block or hit anything) (not in pic)

Oh yeah...did i mention all these parts were bought for a grand total of $104 and an UL barrel .

I also have all SS screws that i am installing now to replace the ****ty rusted ones one there in the pic.
With all those parts the gun shoots flawlessly. It is amazing with no kick and is very consistent

In mid sempember I will buy all of these parts…

Possibly Empire Frame
Infamous m6 board (alias style…getting rid of the ****ty 2k2 wiring)
Hybrid Verdict lpr
VP pistons
Hybrid grips (im using ghetto lexan grips now)
“BL” logo mini volly
Custom anno (any suggestions?)
Im sure im forgeting things right now...

I will update this thread with new pics specs and other things as I get to them.

so since i have recently aquired a used classic timmy in a trade at a tourney, i have decided to upgrade to a point of nearly being 2k5'd. i am not sure if i want to buy new internals or not, but i'll decide when the time comes. i'll start with a list of what i have left to purchase, then i will turn it into a step-by-step update.


tap body for alias set screw-20
stock eye covers-30
eigenram-35
14 inch stiffi barrell-88
cp on-off-35
and to finish it off, gold anno

i think thats it, so lets get started:

6/17/06: trade my ion for a broken *** classic with a 2k2 frame and was 2.9.


7/25/06: trade a unimount to havok123 for a stock alias trigger


8/1/06: fix multiple leaks FINISHED
name the gun wyatt

8/10/06: ship out dualies to trade for alias block/lpr. finally got that damn feedneck out.


8/14/06: order classic feedneck, but recieve this send back


8/16/06: ccm recieved my feedneck today, as well as the returned incorrect one. they are going to match the threads and send back the correct one. damn that was fast. alias block should be here any day now.

sorry for the delay guys. once i get the correct feedneck and the alias block. i will get pics. then i will be sending the gun to BLAST for tapping and milling.

8/19/06: ZOMG!!!!11!! TEH BLOCK IS HUR!!!!11!!!!. sending gun to blast.


9/1/06 god damn, waited 3 weeks for my new wiring harness and hybrid cap, just got them today, but now the gun is skippin shots like mad. depending on what i get for my birthday (monday, the 4th) i may just get a new board and wiring.

9/5/06 got 330 bucks for my birthday yesterday, i am getting a used frenzy board and noid from ubershinobi on the nation, as well as a membrane pad. i am also getting wiring from paintballer187.com. i will send the gun to blast for tapping after i recieve my board, noid, frame, and wiring, and i will dremel out the bottom as apposed to milling it. stay tuned

9/8/06 got home from school to find a nice package on my doorstep. new frame and wiring arrived today. only problems are,
1. my front helicoil is being a ****** so i am solely rely-ing on one rear screw and a weak front screw.
2. the grips i ordered from the same company as the frame, on the same day, aren't here yet.



__________________________________________________ _____________________

comments and advice are appreciated. as well as donated parts (can even be something small, such as hose or orings)

enjoy, and stay tuned

Since everybody is doing Species and other gun update threads I thought I'd contribute my current Dragon project to the battle to see who can build the hottest, tricked out 05'd timmy.

Parts are going out to Precisionpb for anno today or monday, and other than that it's pretty much set to go with the following parts:

Hybrid Hedlock
Alias lpr with VP piston and Alias block
Torpedo with VP piston
Empire Frame
Species Trigger guard and trigger (Custom trigger in the works)
Hybrid Bumper ram cap
Dangerous Power RAPS on/off asa
CP gauges (1 for lpr, 1 for hpr)

2k6 Empire 1.5 board
2k6 Eyes
Empire Balanced Ram sleeve and poppet
Eigenram
Orange bolt

It's at Precisionpb and I'll update with pics when available

mods you can delete this if you feel like it but since when did we turn this into a 2k5'ing "battle"? I do it for the sake of doing it.... and the fact that Im bored and want an excuse to get away from the ol' ball and chain


*Edit* Im currently working on getting several different bodies to work on customizing

I don't care what anyone is doing with their guns, 2k5ing or otherwise.

Everyone who has an update thread in the rest of the forum, they will be closed shortly. If you need to copy information to post here please do so.

Custom Black and Blue Ripper 1 2K5 Intimidator

My newly finished project is a custom 2K5 black with blue parts Ripper 1. This has taken me about 5 months to complete and more money than I want to think about, I love it though. My goal was to use the most amount of aftermarket parts possible (without sacrificing quality) to make it as unique as possible. I started with absolutely nothing, and hand picked each individual part. All parts have been annodized to match by Rick from precisionpb.com. I didn't cut any corners and tried to get everything perfect. Check out the pics than look at the specs below.


--Ripper 1 body
--Critical II Frame
--Critical Trigger
--Killa Detents
--New Designs Feedneck
--New Designs Ram Cap
--Alias Frontblock
--AKA SCMIII LPR
--Violent Products LPR Piston
--AKA 2-liter + regulator w/Bob Long gauge
--Bunkerking Bruce Lee grips
--Violent Products Teflon Bolt
--Alias ram
--Tadao Infamous M5 Board
--Trinity Eyes
--Alias Ram Sleeve
--McMaster lighter poppit spring
--High Flow barbs
--Virtue membrane pad
--Custom annoed matching blue cp on/off unimount
--Custom Annoed Redz pepperstickz barrel kit w/matching blue tips

Alright, here we go.

I decided to start this project when I came upon a nice orange/bronze colored Z-Timmy body here on PbNation, and purchased it, which sparked me into deciding to build another timmy....

Specs of the project thus far:


Orange/Bronze Z-Timmy body
2k2 LED Frame ( I like it better than an Alias/2k5 frame) Soon to be anno'd gloss black.
Black CP Volly and 2k2 LPR
Black Torpedo with CCM J2 Delrin Pistons.
Black Front Block
Black 2k2 Eye Covers
VaporWorks Entropy Board
Black and White Hybrid ***** grips.


Soon to come/on the way:

2k2 Ramsleeve with Eigenram, purchased from Lurker.
Hybrid Endcap
Alias frame may also be added, because the LED frame might be used on a Spimmy project.
Techna Trigger or Chris Lasoya "CL" engraved trigger.
AKA SCMIII

Special modifictions, details to be released later:

Body will have some work done to accept CCM no-pro feednecks...



I wont post pics until tomorrow night, keep the suspense rolling ( And my parents took the camera on vacation with them... ).



Pics!!!!:


Black combo with the Alias frame


Again...



Blue LED Frame, and blue front block. Still trying to decide if I should make it black/bronze or blue/bronze. Annoing it blue/bronze will require more parts to be anno'd I think, eye covers will have to be blue, torp will have to be blue/bronze, then the LPR/Volly will have to be blue/bronze also. If I go with the black/bronze combo, I could get away with just anno'ing the frame black, then leave everything else black also. Not really sure what I will do..... Opinions?



Honestly, I had no idea this Z-Timmy could look this good, when I originally got it, I thought "What the hell color combo will I use with this thing!". But now after some expirementing and such, I believe this could replace my primary Timmy, but I will have to see how it turns out.

So, whaddya guys think? You will have to use your imagination I guess until tomorrow night, but when you see it, it will be more than worth it. This gun is jaw dropping. Cant wait to see how it shoots too

well, i got a new job and thought i would celebrate by building a species.
so far i got a good deal through hell-intimidator on a species body with eye covers, hybrid hedlok2, bolt, bolt remover, and already tapped for an alias block for 80 shipped. Next i pulled out my wallet and paid for an empire pressure balanced ramsleeve for 100 shipped through ebay. yes ebay has a lot in stock for those wondering in 800paintballs store on there. so far 180 down and i couldnt b more happier. next im gona save a lil bit and just buy out an alias and sell off the parts no needed...so be ready if ur looking for a partout. For annoing i m not a fan of the original green/purple acid splashed look so im thinking about either cobalt-clear dust with gloss black parts or black-gunmetal grey with gloss blue parts. either would look sick so if anyone can photoshop pm me and i'll see about pics of a species. by the end i think this will cost around 700-800 but i will b mowing fools and getting some heads turned my way. not alias tapped im just stupid
Parts im putting on:
alias frame
hybrid grips
hybrid lpr
alias front block
VP pistons
VP species bolt
adj. ram cap
species guard-gloss black
eigenram
pressure-balanced sleeve
tadao m6
14" .694 UL

and other goodies

the final anno choice: gloss clear-cobalt with gloss black accents

species body on its way back and will b shipped out to anno soon.
also have an alias partout see my sig for link. Ordered a new torp, eigenram, VP bolt and detents. eyes are next as soon as i can get ahold of paintballer187
