Messing around with a Shocker

So I have this Shocker lying around which I probably wouldn't be able to get more than $250 or so for, so I decided to keep it as a backup and do a little custom engraving on it. I finally decided that I want to go with a sort of carbon fiber look, so I gave it CF-like grips, and then got to work on the engraving.

I am doing all of the engraving by hand with an X-acto blade, so I expect it to not be of the highest quality when I am done with it (my art skills are lackluster), but it will sure as hell look cool. I'm only engraving accents on the gun, but I look forward to the finished product.

tl;dr
Taking an X-acto blade to a Shocker to make a carbon fiber look.


Here is my progress so far:

Except I wanted it engraved, not printed. I have 15 sq. feet of carbon fiber vinyl, that would be too easy.

Taking the tip of it and scraping away the metal. See the blade in the corner of the picture? That is the blade I am using.

Too hard, that little spot you see right there took about 1 hour. I may though if I find that I have too much time on my hands in college.

It looks like it matches the grips almost perfectly.

Thanks guys. I actually think it does look good... from a distance. Close up it doesn't look too good though because of some small imperfections. I'll put some more pics up later when I do more work.
