Sick, did you do it yourself, or who did it? How much?

I did it myself. Bought a kit online and watched a bunch of youtube. It did take some practice though, I messed the rotor up 4 times before finally getting the hang of the dipping process. Luckily the Luxe dip came out good on the first try. I don't think I saved money by doing it myself since I wasted a bunch of material, but I enjoyed doing it so it was worth it to me.

Looks good. I would have done the entire gun though, but the only thing that matters is if you like it.

I'd like to see the other side of that luxe. The big issue I see with these DIY kits is the fact that the initial side comes out perfect and the second side always seems to come out.... drawn/strected/skewed.

That luxe looks sick right now though. How much did the kit end up costing you? $80ish?

Nice Job!! It looks like you did it in 1 dip, When I tried to do my rotor in 1 dip I couldn't get it to look good. Kept getting really stretched and distorted on the other sides. I might have to get some of that camo film to dip my etek in.

Here is the other side of the Luxe


I actually dipped it upside down with the top entering the water first. That way the seam would be covered by the grip frame.

I'm def not as good as the pros but I had fun and it turned out nice in the end.
