I'm curious, did you take off material where the solenoid mounts to the body, or does it just appear that way because you also took some off behind there? Hard to tell with the solenoid there, but if the first option, that would open up the option for quite a few new frames that just wouldn't quite fit. If not still a good way to take off a little more weight. Here's pictures of Elia's and DC's for comparison.
Just picked up the anodized pieces today and just bolted everything together for some pics. Final assembly is still needed. Dropped this project off in person to Stephen at Caustic Customs last Friday and it was done today.
I can't stop staring at the finish as it is so freaking cool looking. He did black, red, violet and pink. Looks amazing in person. Kind of hard to photograph but in different light different colors pop more.
As comfy as the Eclipse grips are they look out of place. I made some aluminum grips today using a portaband clamped in a vice LOL for the rough cuts and a dremel and sander to finish them off. Im going to have these matched to the body.
Also getting some new jewels made to replace the EGO jewels on the frame.
