super spyder project

i've completed my search for the internals
AKA lightning top-cocking bolt
AKA hammer
AKA valve
shim kit
spring kit
LP chamber
BL torpedo reg
t-board w/ ramping chip and eyes
*only need to buy a clamping feedneck*

now im going to start the process of making the custom body and trigger frame. im going to go with making a 90 degree trigger frame, i have contacted a local shop that can make the cutting and milling for me. the hardest part is the body, i really want to have a custom body so it can be a true custom spyder. even with the measurements of the tubes, length, width, and height i dont think its going to work that well due to tghe holes inside of the body for the connection between the hammer and bolt.

that what got be thinking on 2 other ideas.
1- use an exsiting body and shave the detail off and then do with what i want.
2- use an intimidator body. although this would make the gun even more special, im just thinking that its not going to be long enough and that it would require more work than making a body myself.

i really want to make my own body because i would incorperate autococker threads for the barrel so that i can use my ultralights on it.

if anyone knows of any sites, shops, or stores that sell or make spyder bodies or raw spyder bodies please please please tell me.

also any advice is welcomed. and ill get pictures as soon as possible.

yea why make 3 bodies, the gothic, teardrop, and there is some other (i think its the sprial). but for $200 or $175 i dont think its worth it because they are pre-made, howeveri do plan on getting the final product anodized and lazer engraved there.

get a spyder body chop it in half hotdog style drill holes for the air and bolt then weld the 2 tubes stide by side so youll have a shorter profile, just my 2 cents, also i would recomend the acp derlin hammer instad of the aka, also you dont need the shim kit if you have the spring kit a stock **** would work fine, and i would find a way to mod a eblade eye to the gun so youd only need 1 eye, i have a extra 1 pm me and we can work somethin out

thats a good idea, my neighbor has an old shutter lying around so if i end up using an older spyder body ill just send that to get hacked away.

Or you could go on www.airsoldier.com and order one of their body blanks there.

How much is it costing you to get a trigger frame made?

Not a bad idea at all. And the body that would be is the PMI Piranha EVO. It's a veritable suitcase of a body. It's set up for Spyder threading but it's meaty enough that a shop could machine and tap it for the cocker threading. But with the cocker barrel tap being something special you'd have to buy it for them to use.

Barrel tap set... and yes you need both. You need to start the thread with the tapered tap and then finish it to the blind hole with the bottoming tap.

Or get the body extrusion linked in Fred's post above this and get the whole thing done.

i actually checked that store but the only raw body they have is the merlin autococker so the holes for the rod to the bolt and hammer is not there.

as for the price its going to be about $30 for the metal and $100 for the milling. so $130 and i have a 90 degree frame.

actually the EVO's hammer tube is smaller than spyder's. but the body is pretty huge, it could work but im checking ebay and asking around for bodies and such.

pictures are going to have to wait. i'm still in the blueprint stage for the trigger frame and for the body.

but i've decided on what the anno is going to be.
dust clear, im trying to get it as white as i can. its going to fade to dust black at the tip of the barrel, then im getting a distrested sort of spiderweb on the gun in black. then in red im going to have the words "glory through victory, victory through death", just like the company known as "killing machine's" motto.
