Opinion poll on restoring Dye Iron Men Angel

ok yeah i bought that iron men with the eye hole atrocities. I think it will be my last project, selling others to fund and do it right. So opinion.



Option 1 is what i am leaning toward
Option 2 is a cop out but might have to be
Option 3 would be cheapest
Option 4 might be cost prohibitive and not sure if gains are worth it.

Part of me wants to say patch it, but it will be a perm blemish. But the train wreck that is on it now is even worse... tough call.

Yea I voted for option 3. Just for the record my speed3 was epoxy'd and it looked alot better than that one. If you patched the bad holes could you re epoxy aswell? Is that including a re anno? I think a red to graphite would be awesome.

i dropped doc (of docsmachine) an email. I am not sure if he is taking new work.

If you tap and fill it with 6061 threaded rod the anno should match. I cant see doing a splash job on something with such beautiful milling and smooth lines.

the reason why i put quotes around the "dynasty" is because i haven't verified it was really used by dynasty...

will try to take a pic of my ir3's board...

i mean you don't have to splash it. you could go matte that would help, or a nice fade.... idk. I agree splash is too much and it would kill the lines of the gun. still little faded spots are not as bad as what is on there now....

I think you should send it to Docsmachine. If anyone is going to do it the right way... he can. He'll tell you what can and cannot be done - I'd poll him. That detent in there looks to be a cocker one If it is and it was only threaded in once, it might be recoverable.
Personally if all options are possible, I would have doc thread in some screws like he did on his dark, polish it to become flush, and then either have doc install some sort of custom eyes or have it flied. Maybe anodize it in an acid wash scheme. I don't think anybody has done that and I've been thinking about it myself.
As for the daughterboard, you should definitely keep that board setup. I had an adrenalin with the same board setup years ago that I used in the psp series and it rocked. It's like an old school meets new-school sort of thing. OG ftw.

Since it's already drilled I'd get it up to date and enjoy it. Even if the holes are plugged it will never be the same.
